Very new to filemaker.


Is there a way to drag and drop without the images being embedding in the filemaker file?


Cuz I am bringing a thousand plus images into filemaker and using the insert picture. That works but after 80 images I have to keep scrolling within the folder and I easily lose my place (images are web paged from excel and those have generic labels). I am looking at the old excel file to identity and confirm the images when I am inserting the images.


The only work around I can think of is to divide the images into separate folder containing around 100 images each. Thus when I insert the pic, I keep track of the images of inserting before without having to scroll a huge numbers of images.
