Re: A couple of questions about the ICONS Character Folio
- Thanks again for your help, Chris. The picture didn't show up, but I'm pretty sure they .icf files don't embed actual images but are really just text files. I sent you an .icf file and a PNG to see if the PNG image shows up in the Character Folio if you keep them together in the same folder.
I just opened up an .icf file in Windows notepad and it's kind of a text file inside. I found a link to the absolute path to the PNG image file in there (e.g. D:\001 My Projects\Super Heroes\Desert Storm\desertstormcolorsample.png), so I'm assuming it's a no and you have to re-associate the image with the .icf in Character Folio on another computer unless you store it in exactly the same path location.
