Hello Community,

I cannot find an Inset property that will let me know if a graphic is not being displayed because FM could not find the source. I have the oGraphic.InsetFile property but don't see how to determine if the image is being displayed or not.

My task is to create a list of all missing graphics in the document so the user can manually then try to go and reconnect the missing graphic(s) to the AFrame.

Thanks in advance!

You can do something like this:var file;file = new File (oGraphic.InsetFile);if (file.exists === false) {    // Missing graphic.}
