Is there a possibility to convert an object to be a linked file?
In my scenario I do have an object I exported earlier (so that it can later-on be placed as link). The file I exported it from of course still has the original in it which I would now like to be linked to its "exported self".
Of course I could just delete it and place it again, however this would mean that I would have to adjust position and everything again which I would like to save myself from if there happens to be a quicker way.
I was thinking of something like this: "convert to link > specify link-source > done"
I don't know if I have been dreaming, but I could've sworn I saw a similar functionality either in Illustrator itself or another Adobe program.
