Pictures were visible, now only picture box with image name!?
« on: November 14, 2017, 04:59:17 pm »
My images are set to be visible at normal resolution..why suddenly is scribus only showing picture boxes with the name of the picture file in place of the actual picture?

Is scribus trying to help me in some way?

Everything is set to show images...all images on same layer, layer set to visible. Some images are showing, have same settings. Confusing!

Thank you!

The most usual cause of this is when you have moved either the images or SLA. Doing so destroys the relative link between the SLA and the images.
If this is what has happened you need to right-click on each image frame that is showing the name of the file and choose "Get Image..." from the menu. You can then locate the image again and restore the link.
