When you embed an progeCAD drawing, it becomes part of the other program's document file. When you edit the drawing, you edit only the version that is embedded in the other document.
Embedding is useful when you don't want to maintain a link to the progeCAD drawing for the data you include in the other document. Edits made to the this new drawing do not affect the original drawing. To transfer the file to other computers, you can transfer all the data in one file, but embedded objects increase the file size.
From within a document in a program that supports ActiveX, such as Microsoft® Word, you can either create a new embedded progeCAD drawing or embed an existing progeCAD drawing.
