In my build I am using 'new referenced control/image file' for all images. This workflow works fine for publishing to IOS but fails to load any images in Android. If I use a script to embed all linked media and compile for Android, all is well - images appear fine. I store all my images and other media in a Media folder next to the authoring file. It's like after compiling for Android the directory structure is destroyed and the app can't see or load images. I can see in the iOS app that the directory structure is maintained (I can explore the package in the Finder ) but I can't do this with the Android file file. Any ideas?
