Drag and drop should also replicate the data much like set field does.
The Data Viewer reveals that it is looking at things different. But is there a way to tell it get it from here, and set it up like when it was dragged? This the result from the Data Viewer
from Set Field ($path)
Could Get as Text be helpful here? Thanks
I see that using a Script step Go to Field and then Insert Picture gives the result I was looking for. Thanks
While the text returned looks different, the end result is the same. Set field will exactly duplicate the contents of the "calculated result" field in the target field. That means that you could get either of the two results that you have reported. Drag and drop is the same as insert picture from the insert menu.
but both actions are copying the data from one container field to another.
if you are seeing a functional difference, it may be that you are drag and dropping into a field with global storage enabled in the starter solution.
