Does it work now Scarlett?
Comment by Jacqui on August 10, 2010 at 16:22
Okay, thanks I'll do that too. It works beautifully on my mac, but then some of the other systems around aren't quite so smart :)
Comment by Scarlett on August 10, 2010 at 16:19
you're welcome :)
it's only showing in the event description as a proxy image for me - ie just a blank box with a red cross in it - who would guess to click on that? might be worth adding it as a file instead of as a picture to the event description
