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 I get the 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 to do it in Adobe Illustrator with PDFs, but is this possible in Inkscape?
