Attribute Manager bug?: importing Surfaces from another file

Stuart Smith

When importing Surfaces from another file using the Attribute Manager, any texture images that are located in the Embedded Library are shown as missing and will not be imported.


I don't recall running into this issue in the past, I think it's new in 26.

not new. it never did.


Exporting surface attribute only exports "associated attributes: but won't include any embedded image. if you had the image embedded, try moving to the shared lib folder or exporting and importing into a new project.

The textures are still linked to your surfaces.

It is just you need to load the library that contains the texture images - that is why they are missing.
