Hi everybody,

 

I've found a few posts claiming that FM2017 and FM2019 have images issues that FM2015 did not have.

My collegues and I are facing the issues likewise.

 

Opening an XML file with images defined either by "scale" or e.g. by "width", some images will be "mis-sized".

Consider this <fig> node:

<fig><figspace/><image href="../PathToImage/Image.png" placement="break"  scale="24.00" />
<title>Title of the Image</title></fig>

The image may be scaled by 24%, but not always.

I tried to pinpoint the issue by inserting this node several time a row.

<fig><figspace/><image href="../PathToImage/Image.png" placement="break"  scale="24.00" />
<title>First Insertion</title></fig>
<fig><figspace/><image href="../PathToImage/Image.png" placement="break"  scale="24.00" />
<title>Second Insertion</title></fig>

 No difference between the two nodes, yet, the value for scale in the object properties dialog in FM are different between the two images. (and the scale value in the dialog ist different from the value the scale attribute)sBugFM_Images.png

 

Changing the scale in the oject properties helps until closing the file. When opened again, the same wrong values are there again.

Any suggestions?

Can you please share the file set once so we can look at why this difference. This is an area we do plan to address and improve over the upcoming Summer Release of 2020 updates. 

 

Thanks

Hi FabianK007,

 

FM fits an object to the frame size when it is inserted. Is the image bigger than the frame in this case?

Also, reagarding the different scaling on the image, Can you specify if the frame where image is inserted is different?

 

Thanks & Regards,

Namita
