This is another feature I'm not sure I dreamed or not.I could have sworn I read in the documentation somewhere the ability to insert pictures. If that is a feature, will you please point me in the right direction? Thanks.

I haven't tried out the print feature yet, but I'm excited to see the icon for it!

Right now, if you open an image up in windows paint, or some other image editor, or if you right click on an image in a browser and copy it, you can paste it into a document.

Another option is you can link to files stored on your hard drive, or on the web, by pasting the link into the document. If you want to a link to a document stored on your drive, preface the path with "file://"

Clicking these links will open them in the internal browser.

Neither of these options is ideal, though. It takes up far more room to paste them in a document than if I stored the image as image data directly and had a separate document type for them, which is the plan. Links to images on your computer mean you won't be able to view them if you move the .box file to another computer, etc...

An Image document is on the feature list.

Oh, if you do embed an image into a document as described above, limit them to one image per document, especially if they're large. The editor takes forever to load them, and there's nothing I can do about it.

Thanks. I hadn't even considered the copy and paste. I was thinking about using the storyboard to do a trailer.

I'm curious - how would you use the storyboard to do a trailer?

Not the actual trailer, but the script. I love the storyboard. Cute little boxes to type what I want for each image. Kind of like a comic book strip.

Ah, Ok. You'll like when I get the image documents working, then. You'll be able toggle between the text and the image on those cards :)
