When you want to edit a linked OLE object, you must edit the source file in the server application.
To edit a linked object
1 Select the OLE object with the Pick tool.
2 Click Edit, Linked Object, Edit.
The server application is automatically launched and the linked file is opened.
• The exact text of the Edit menu item changes depending on the object type. For example, if the selected OLE object is a document from a word processor, the Edit menu item reads Document Object.
• Double-clicking an OLE object also launches the server application.
