Thanks, Jeanne. I was trying to include the URL keyword before the
file name. But here is a new problem. The first time I set the
filename of the image to a URL on a web server it works fine. But if
I try to set it to a different web URL it sticks with the first
image, no matter what. It will let me set the filename to anything I
want, but the image displayed does not change UNLESS I set the
filename of the image to a local file. Then it displays that image
file no problem. Here's where it gets weird: If I try to set the
filename back to any image on any web server, it only displays the
first web image set, every time. If I save, close and relaunch the
stack it will then, finally, display the last web image set.
This is consistent in Rev 1.1.1b1 for Mac OS X and OS 9.2. It
appears to be a bug. Can anyone else confirm this and/or tell me
what I'm doing wrong?
