Users have the option to unlink content in Present, so that this content can be edited without affecting the original visual in Discover, and vice versa.
This means users can:
- Overwrite the themes and formatting applied to the visual from Discover, without affecting the original instance.
- Edit the original content without affecting presentations and publications that have already been built using that content.
How to Unlink Content
Unlink all content items currently in the presentation. Go to the Presentation ribbon and click Unlink All.
Unlink a single selected content item using the Unlink button. Select the relevant visual, then go to the Component ribbon and click Unlink.
When the original visualization in Discover is edited, the unlinked visual in the report will not be affected.
The formatting panel in Present allows you to make formatting changes to content that has been unlinked. If the selected content item has not been unlinked, the Formatting panel will display the following message: "To format styles select a one-off report." This means that you need to unlink the item to be able to change its formatting.
Once the content item has been unlinked, the Formatting panel (when expanded) will display the item's formatting options. Any formatting changes will be applied only to the selected unlinked item; other instances of the item (the original instance in Discover, or other instances in Publish or Present) will not be affected.
