WLW Image Disappears RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Using WLW 14.0.5025.904 to publish to Blogspot (running on Windows XP SP2 and current on updates).

    Scenario: I create a post, insert an image, save as local draft, close WLW.  Open it again, open the draft.

    Symptom: The image does not appear in the draft.  A block/placeholder is there, the same size as the former image, but the image is not seen. 

    The html for the image (added line breaks for readbility):
    <href="$peas201020082323.jpg" target="_blank">  
    <img title="peas20102008232"   
    style="border-top-width: 0px; display: inline; border-left-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-right-width: 0px"   
    height="402" alt="peas20102008232"   
    width="644" border="0" /> 

    Cause: Beats me.

    2nd Scenario: At the same place, right click (context menu) on the image placeholder block, select "Show properties"

    Symptom: The sidebar (right side) disappears (equivalent to F9).  Repeat the "show propoerties" and it reappears.  A properties dialog never does.

    Cause: Unknown

  • First Issue:

    Do this happen with all images, or just certain ones?

    Second Issue:

    This is the expected behaviors, though I admit it is kind of confusing.

    Show Properties is referring to the properties on sidebar.  It is a checkable option, so clicking 'Show Properties' when they are already showing, will uncheck the option, thus hiding it.

  • Well, yes,  that show properties action does seem a bit odd.  I was expecting more details.  That sidebar is more of an "actions" than a "properties".

      Yes, it happens on 100% of the images.
