Changing file path loses inserted graphics

(1/1)

Little_Evenstar:
Hello,

I'm experiencing a problem if I move a Scribus SLA file to a different folder, or if I move the source PNG or PDF graphics to a different folder. The inserted graphics are then 'lost' in the SLA file and the image frames are blank with a red cross (but they do have the image file name listed). If this happens all of the graphics need to be re-inserted.

I've tried to lock the images (CTR L), but it still happens.

Any suggestions, please?

Thanks.

RodneyLee:
Next time use "Collect for Output" and move everything together, images are not embedded, this is a common mistake made by most user at one time or another

Little_Evenstar:

Many thanks, Rodney.

That's helpful.

Regards.

Nermander:
The topic shows the misunderstanding.

It should be "Changing file path loses linked graphics"

Scrbius does not embed graphics in the SLA but includes a link to it. Moving the SLA (or the graphic) means the link is no longer correct.
