Making library items editable in a document

Making library items editable in a document

If you’ve added a library item to your document and you want to edit the item specifically for that page, you must break the link between the item in the document and the library. Once you’ve made an instance of a library item editable, that instance cannot be updated when the library item changes.

To make a library item editable:

  1. Select a library item in the current document.
  2. Click Detach from Original in the Property inspector (Window > Properties).

    The selected instance of the library item loses its highlighting (if you had highlighting visible), and can no longer be updated when the original library item changes.
