I am using Inkscape as a canvas to layout existing pdf/svg/png plots that I have made in Python, and then add some details and text to the overall figure. When I import the pdf/svg files via
File >> Import... >> Link, they are embedded in Inkscape. I have noticed that if I do this with a raster image instead, I get to option to link to the file instead of embedding it, so that when I update the plots in Python, they are automatically updated in Inkscape.
I can not find how to link to pdf/svg files in the same way. I wish to keep the full resolution pdf/svg plots, instead of using rasters. My friend showed me how this is possible in Adobe Illustrator with pdfs, but I can't seem to figure it out in Inkscape, is it possible? If so, how do I go about it?
