You can create documents from within FileCabinet CS from any application that supports Active Document Interface, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. When you create a file as an embedded object in FileCabinet CS, you can edit the file in the associated application, or from within FileCabinet CSusing many of the features of the object's source application.

  1. Choose Object > Create New.
  2. In the Create Object dialog, select the drawer ID for the drawer (or choose <Select multiple drawers>) that contains the folders in which you will store the embedded object.
  3. In the Object type pane, choose the type for the object. This list includes all applications that are installed on your computer and support Active Document Interface.
  4. Enter a name for the embedded file in the Object name field. This field contains the name of the object type selected above by default.
  5. In the Store Document in folders pane, mark the checkbox next to each folder in which the embedded object will be stored.

    Tip: If you do not select a folder for the object, it will be placed in a folder named {Not yet filed} and can be placed in a folder later.

  6. Click OK.
