Hello. When i import a part from the library and i want to modify it later, solidworks dont't allow me to do that. It is still linked to the library. How can i break this link? Thanks in advance.

Right click on the library feature and select dissolve library feature.
You can also uncheck this option during insertion.
Thank you Deepak. But somehow I don't see these options in the menu. What am i doing wrong?

Oops, the pictures are for the features and not part. Sorry my bad.
For parts, you should be able to edit them directly. You may save them with a new name after inserting into the assembly (use Save As) and then edit as needed.
RMB on the part/sub-assembly and on drop down menu choice: Make Virtual or Make Independent.
Both options are breaking link to the Library and both work fine
Are you using PDM? If it is in pdm the part needs to be checked-in prior to the next steps.
Search on your computer for the application: sldsetdocprop.exe
Navigate to your part, select no, and break the link.
