    ****************************************************************
    If a linked OLE object has "Manual update" option is set,
    the rendering of this object shouldn't be updated
    automatically when the source document is changed. Instead
    it needs to be updated with "update now" button from the OLE
    Properties dialog.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Issue is fixed by making updates of linked OLE objects
    manually, if the "Manual update" option is set.
