[anchor]Info objects [/anchor]are external files or attachments. Adding an info object to the canvas is a way to embed a document for viewing. The toolbar icon is only for placing info objects onto the canvas. To attach info objects to activities, milestones, and benchmarks, open their object windows and choose the Info Objects tab.
NOTE: If the iObject is copied and linked to the project folder, the filepath shown will still display the original location, so that you can always remember where the original file was located.
NOTE: If the info object is a NetPoint schedule, the current schedule will be saved automatically. If you don’t wish to save the schedule, click Cancel in the confirmation that opens.
The Properties window is where the general settings are changed.
