BUG - JPG with embedded color profile won't import


I'm trying to import the attached JPG image by dragging it over the plan workspace in Archicad, but it won't appear.

The image originally  came from a Canon scanner and was processed in GIMP. It has sRGB color profile embedded, and I think this prevents it from being read by Archicad. If I resave the file in MS Paint, which removes the color profile, then it can be placed in Archicad, but it's only a workaround, so I would expect a fix for what is clearly a bug. Any chances?

No it doesn't drag & drop in.

But if you use the figure tool and browse for the file, you will see it can be chosen but has no size or pixels.

Not sure if that has to do with the way it was saved.


You can add your own size and it does then work, but is still says it has no pixels.
