Disappearing bitmaps

Post by dajqcad » Thu Jul 10, 2014 7:54 pm

I am currently using version 3.5 and am having problems with imported bitmaps. Every time I save and close a drawing that has a bitmap added to it the bitmap disappears when the drawing is reopened. The bitmap being used is a standard jpeg which behaves properly when installed - can be moved, rotated and scaled - but as soon as I close and save it vanishes. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? Am I using the wrong format - would simple .bmp or tiff files do better?

I am using QCAD on an iMac with Mavericks v.10.9.4 installed.

Thanks for your report.
Could you attach the drawing file (DXF) and bitmap file you are using or send it to me via private message or e-mail if it is private? Thanks.
