jpg images become delinked upon save and close

Postby gregr » Wed Apr 16, 2014 1:12 pm

Hi.
I have several jpgs inserted into a dxf file (QCAD 3.4.6). When I save, exit, and reopen the file, some of the image file locations have been lost. When I select the blank area where the image used to be, a blue handle appears; in the Property Editor pane, the File box is blank. I can paste in the file path and the image reappears. All inserted images are saved in the same folder and none of the images have been moved, renamed, etc. Only some of the inserted images lose their file location, but it is the same images every time I close and open the file.

Thanks for your report.

Please attach or e-mail the DXF and JPG files for testing. Thanks.

Thanks.

I can only see two image entities in that drawing.

Generally speaking, I recommend to keep drawing files (DXF) and image files (JPG, ...) in the very same directory / folder. The DXF format does not support relative paths, but QCAD always tries to load images from the same directory if loading from the absolute path fails.

Hi Andrew,
Have you been able to reproduce the issue?

Greg: I haven't had a chance to try to reproduce this yet. Since you are using the community edition of QCAD, this might be a bug in dxflib.
