Re: inline image, image relative path or...

Dear Hans, 

Thank you for you explination.

I also had a problem with the "relative" path in dia.
certain images had a static path as source, and thus gave errors on my colleagues PC. even when the images where in the "image" directory.

This was fixed when I changes the path of the image and then clicking on the "apply" button before on the "ok" button in the image propertie dialogue box. 

When I find time to reproduce this, I will send a report to the mailing list.

Again thank you very much for the quick answer,

There are two workaround on the web and the one on ( works,

For released versions the only way.

But the inline option that is described on the following is
"Images can be stored embedded in the diagram ("inline data"). You should
handle this option with care, because embedding images increases not only
the files size, but also the load and save times for the diagram."

Yes, the current development version has this extra option. The version history in shows that an unreleased is documented. (Probably the website should instead show the documentation generted from the 0-97 branch.

Where is this option :) I can not find it in the windows version (0.97.1),
but perhaps I am looking in the wrong place.

ATM you would have to compile the development version yourself.
