We ALWAYS copy into document. This allows us to pass the file around  
without breaking the links to the graphics. It may take a little  
longer to do our books, but I feel it equals out since we don't have  
to hassle with broken links. As far as paginating our books, we just  
break our files down a little smaller and this makes the files fast  
enough to work with.
