Set it as a preference to automatically download images, use certain folder, and force the download. Absolutely crazy that this needs fixing every time!2020-09-15 at 12:44 pm #14796PatStaff
Thank you for your Feedback. Could you please go into detail?
What do you mean by fixing? Did you find a bug?
The reason for no automation here simple: not every database has a full URL to the image so the user must be able to build a URL dynamically. Other URLs are not real URLs pointing to internal fileshares so its good to let the user choose.
Still what were planning is to save a fully configured placeholder as “template” so you can load it wherever you need it.
I assume you have a lot of placeholders with an image setup + download?

Hi John,Thanks for getting in touch.Basically, I am using nearly 50 URL images in my project. As far as I can tell, the only way to get them to work is to click on the first image placeholder, click the cog, select ‘Download image’, select my folder, and click ‘Force download’ for every single one. It would be great if there was a way to set the entire project to ‘automatically Download image’ and ‘automatically Force download’ from X folder.Best wishes,Jeremy2020-09-15 at 1:45 pm #14798PatStaff
Now i got it. Indeed that would be nice. I will put it on the agenda to be discussed.
Thank you for the suggestion!
