      Summary

      graphic issue

      Description of the issue

      I am using filemaker pro 10 advanced with windows vista sp2My problem is with after I have modified a couple of the graphics I got from Database Pros ( filemake reference ) which I touched up as there is a white background around the graphics. I am unable to drag and drop onto my interface nor am I able to copy and paste it onto the interface. I get the corner dots of the graphic but the graphic it self does not display. I have used GIMP to modify the graphic. I also purchased the theme library for filemaker and when I try and drag and drop those graphics I get an error telling me that the action cannot be preformed because this file is not modifiable. Any information on how to correct this would be very helpful.Tks

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Are you able to take the original graphic and place it on the layout?  Does it display?  If so, then try using a different program to modify the graphic.  Are the original graphics from Database Pros JPEG files?  PNG files?  TIFF files?  Do they display in a Container field?

           

          Any additional information you can provide may help narrow the possible causes.

               I am able to insert the original graphics from data base pros and they work fine. However when I attempt to touch them up to match my back ground I loose them except for the anchor dots. I am unable to insert new graphics either all I get is the 4 anchor dots showing what should be the graphic. I am in the process of getting adobe photoshop so when I get it I'll try that and see what happens. I'll let you know either way if it does or doesn't work.
