Inkscape has a function "Make a bitmap copy" that converts a selection of items in a document into a raster image, in place.
Is there an equivalent function available in Adobe InDesign?
What I am trying to achieve is to replace a complex vector image, which takes a long time to render in an exported PDF, by a rasterized render that loads much faster. I know how to do this manually by exporting, re-importing and positioning, but I would prefer a more straightforward workflow, as offered by Inkscape.
Actually using Inkscape is not an option in my case.
I have searched the web with several descriptions of the problem, to no avail so far.
