    Does linking text save space?

    PauletteP2

      Hi all,

      I write proposals for a living, and while learning InDesign, I created a template of about 60 master pages that I move to the new proposal documents as I need them. This document has gotten very big and slow. All the images are linked, however I typed the text right into the document. It sounds pretty tedious to go through and cut the text, then create a Word or notepad document for each text part. My question is: Is it worth it? Would it cut down the file size significantly?

       

      Also, I have text in a character style that highlights it when it's something I need to change, like the Customer name. How do I preserve applied styles?

       

      Thanks for the help!
