Object...

Inserts a new embedded or a linked object. The type of object and its options must be defined in the corresponding dialog window.

Embedded objects do not change in a flixo document, when you edit the original file data. After the insertion, embedded objects become a part of the flixo document. Double click on the object to edit it in its source file.

Linked objects will only change when the source file (e.g. spreadsheet) is modified with the appropriate program. The data of a linked object is stored in the source file; flixoonly saves the file path, and displays a representation of the linked file.
