We're having a debate in my TW team about whether to use Import by Ref
for graphics or Copy into Document. I always Import by reference. The
hardware writers copy into document. Their books take much longer to
build than mine, and I am convinced that it's because they are copying
the graphics into the document.

Am I right, is this what's causing their slow book building process?  I
have much bigger books than they do, in terms of pages, but they have
bigger graphics.

Also, what are some arguments for importing by ref vs copying in? What
do you guys do?

Thank you,
