Embed OLE Objects in Drawings

When you embed information from another document in a drawing, the information is not updated when it changes in the source document.

You can embed an object in a drawing by copying the object to the Clipboard and then pasting it into the drawing file. For example, you can embed a company logo created with another application into a drawing.

Drag Objects into a Drawing

You can drag selected data and graphics into a drawing from another application window. Both applications must be running and visible on your screen. The other application must support ActiveX to drag information between applications. Objects dragged into a drawing are embedded, not linked.

Dragging data is the same as cutting and pasting. The information is removed from one document and pasted into the other document. Holding down CTRL while dragging is the same as copying and pasting in that it creates a copy of the information, leaving the original document intact.
