Title: Photos/Images in TBX 6
Post by Diane Thompson on Jul 2nd, 2014, 4:19pm

I had started adding photos to TBX 5 for inventory purposes and it has been working really well.  When I look at the same file in TBX 6 the images are gone.  Is there an attribute I need to tweek?  some reason they don't show up in the notes area?
or are images taken out of TBX6?

Image adornment in Tinderbox 6 use a new format; you'll need to reimport the images.

Other images should move without trouble.

And Tinderbox 6 makes adding images MUCH easier.

When you say reimport, do you mean that there is another way to "import" them other than dragging and dropping?  I setup the prototype for my artwork and dragged the images into the container for inventory and that seemed to work well.  I already have a lot of the fields filled out and don't really want to delete the files and start over.  Is there another way to import the images without losing the data?

Are we talking about image adornments, or images in text?

Images in text.  I have just dragged and dropped the images into a container set up for inventory with the prototype setup with the fields I want.  The image is there and once all the fields are filled out I can add columns to my outline and get a listing.  The list doesn't have the image showing, but maybe once I figure out how to export to html ?  Even if I can't export the images and data to html I can at least have the images for reference.

Images in text should move without change from Tinderbox 5.12 .  At present, images are not exported to HTML, but this will change shortly.

Please send an example note from your Tinderbox 5 document to info@eastgate.com and we'll investigate.

Mark, what's the status on the image export functionality? Any chance of that coming in the near future?

Image export (of inline images in note $Text) is implemented in v6.5.0.

Does this work when exporting to DOC and rtf files?

I am not getting the embedded images when I am exporting the selected notes to .doc file.

Not at present; it's a limitation of the Macintosh’s doc support. This might well change.
