Thanks for the reply.

They are whatever is set in when you use the browse feature to select a
file to which to link. No, I did not move the images. At least, I don't
think I did until everything disappeared and I took this as a sign that
perhaps I should really be doing things the other way... I've just tried
moving back a copy and still no go. Is it really that picky? If so, I
*really* need to get with the program and import those little dudes.
Along some of the same lines, I did import a series of 4 images for a
single card and set their visibles to false. The idea is that the player
is randomly selected for a Hogwarts House and then the appropriate House
image is set to true. It doesn't. Similarly, when I import it (as
control), I am not able to set its visible to false, either in script or
the message box. Is this not doable? Shouldn't it be doable? It's
doable if I don't change the image's name from within Rev, but since at
this point it's not a reference to an external file, *shouldn't* I be able
to reset its name and refer to it by its new name?
