How do you embed an image in a stack so a path reference is not needed?
This lesson will show you how to directly embed an image into a stack so that the original image file is no longer needed
Open your stack and display the card you wish to import the image into. To import the image file, first select "File" for the menu, then "Import as Control", then select "Image File..." on the submenu (File>>Import as Control>>Image File..). You can also use the shortcut "Ctrl + >". A control is any object that can be placed on a card such as a button, field or image. These objects are stored as part of the stack and are incorporated into the standalone application file.
Select the image you require using the file dialog. If your image file does not appear in its folder then it may be the case that it has an incorrect file extension.
You can now use the selection handles around the image to move and resize the image. You can also right click on the image and change its properties that way.
Once the stack is saved this image will become part of the stack. The image will stay in the stack even if the original image file can be moved or deleted.
