Title: Importing Images From Shared Drives
Post by: whitehead on February 23, 2014, 03:59:57 pm
Hello all - I dual-boot Linux/Windows and I have a shared data drive for both with is usually visible from within Linux applications. However, when using 'Get Image' I only see the main Linux directory and not my other drives to import from. I thought about a workaround using the Scrapbook, but this doesn't quite work as I thought it initially might, i.e. images seemingly have to be copied from Scribus into the Scrapbook to be importable, rather than merely nominating an existing folder (already pre-populated with images) for Scrapbook to be able to see and import its contents.

The odd thing I suppose is that Scrapbook can see the shared drives as normal, whereas Get Image doesn't: is there a step I'm missing?

Many thanks,

Peter
