The debate will be over the first time one of their imported-by-copy graphics gets corrupted and turns into a gray box. Someone will have to know what and where the original graphic is, since that data is not stored when the graphic is imported by copy. Importing by copy is bad practice.
Rick Quatro Carmen Publishing 585-659-8267 www.frameexpert.com Guys, 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?
