Chapter 2. Working with Windows Programs > Inserting and Editing Information

Inserting and Editing Information

Instead of switching back and forth between programs to copy and paste information, you can insert, or embed, the information. Embedding inserts a copy of one document into another. Once you embed data, you can edit it using the menus and toolbars of the source program without leaving the program in which it's embedded (that is, the destinationprogram). For example, you can create a picture in a program, such as Paint, or select an existing picture and insert it into a WordPad document. The inserted picture is an object which you can resize.

Embed an Existing Object

Click where you want to embed the object.

Click the Insert menu, and then click Object.

Click the Create From File option.

Click Browse, and then double-click the file with the object you want to embed.

Click OK.
