image library

Hi Edward,
In LC, you'll find the Image Libraries in IDE stacks named "revLib" plus the
name of the library.  If you switch on LiveCode UI Elements in the View
Menu, you'll see those stacks (if there are any in your application).  Each
stack has one card that holds all the images.

I don't know where they are kept in HC, but I imagine if you could somehow
copy the HC images into IDE stacks with the correct name, they would show up
in your application's Image Library.

I realise this is not very specific!  I've never messed with the IDE stacks
so not sure what's involved, other than making sure you have a backup copy
to go back to before doing anything else.

Hope that at least gives a place to start from.
