There are three kinds of inline objects: images, OLE objects, and ActiveX controls. The most common ones are images, of course. For example, in this manual, many images are inline objects, e.g. . Inline objects belong to a text line in the same way as characters.
MetaTexis treats inline objects like fields and hyperlinks. You can simply copy them to include them into the translation. In MetaTexis you can use the function Copy image/object to do this. If the translation contains no image/object, this function copies the first image/object present in the source segment. If the translation already contains one image/object, it copies the second image/object present in the source segment. If the translation already contains two images/objects, it copies the third image/object present in the source segment, and so on.
Note: When you copy a source segment which includes inline objects via the Copy source text command , the inline objects are also copied. But when a TU with images is saved in a translation memory, the images are NOT included.
