When you use the Link to File option to link to an inserted picture in a Microsoft Publisher 2000 publication, the file size of the publication is increased by the same amount that would occur if you embedded the picture in the publication.
This behavior occurs because Publisher 2000 stores an embedded copy of any inserted picture, whether or not the picture is linked to an external picture file on disk.
When you link to a picture file, you can use Graphics Manager to manage or to update the picture dynamically.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Publisher 2000.
To start Graphics Manager:
- Start Publisher 2000.
- Point to Commercial Printing Tools on the Tools menu, and then click Graphics Manager.
