I know that it is possible to place pages of another indd inside a parent indesign file as a linked file. But is it possible to embed it? I'm using ID5.5 and the embed option is greyed out for linked indd files, but not for other file types (eg. TIFFs, PDF, etc).
I can understand why it might be unfeasible to embed an indd file, but want to make sure that I'm not missing something obvious.
To clarify my ultimate intention here:
I have a contract template (.indt) that includes my T&Cs at the back. Those T&Cs exist as a separate .indd file, which is 'placed' in the contract .indt. Thus, if my T&Cs get amended/updated the contract template does too.
However, the T&Cs should stop updating in documents derived from that template; i.e., once it moves from being a contract template to being a specific contract document, the T&C should get baked in. Hence I want to embed a file that is already in place, subsequent to its initial placement.
