Edit Linked Documents

To develop the contents of a linked document, you use the Linked Document Editor. This is based on the RTF Editor, providing a wide range of convenient features for formatting and editing the document, and for adding links from and references to the content of the document. The editor facilities are provided from a context menu that you display by right-clicking in the body of the document.
