We have a large number of models where we have Documented Knowledge Objects which have a link to a document that sits in a file share.

When creating a publisher export, I have noticed that the content of the documents always gets copied into a BLOB field in the database used by Business Publisher. Irrespective if I have set the "copy documents" property in the publisher profile to true or false.

Question 1: Is there any way of making sure documents are not copied. Many of the documents are very large (many high resolution pictures and detailed drawings), so it slows down the export and takes up unnecessary space in the database.

Question 2: In the case when the documents are copied to the publisher database, can I somehow configure the Business Publisher search engine to also search content in the documents (most documents are PDF format) rather than only searching the data sitting directly in model or object attributes?

Thanks for any input on these items.
