I have to replace a linked object with another one but it would be nice to keep all object transformations of the old proxy.

What is the common way to do this?

    $\begingroup$ What about adding your other object, then copying the first objects transforms with RMB > copy to selected? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Oct 2 '14 at 20:44
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks gandalf. For me it sounds like a workaround, it whould be nice to edit the path of the linked object instead of placing a new object. $\endgroup$ – p2or Oct 5 '14 at 15:35

Select all objects that share linked data, then select your new object last so that it is the active object. Then press CtrlL and select Object Data from the menu.
