I received a file containing images, but only the image icons appear, not the images themselves. What's wrong?

It is likely that the images were not explicitly included in the drawing file, but were only linked. If the file has been moved, then the images have not followed the drawing file.

You must find the source file for the drawing, unlink the image files, and include them directly in the drawing file:

  • Select Edit ▸ Links to External Files from the main menu; if the command is grayed out, it indicates that there is no link to the images, and the problem is elsewhere
  • Select all images: Click on the first item in the list, then hold down ⇧ Shift and click on the last item in the list
  • Click on Break Link
  • Click on Close
  • Save the file with images embedded
