Carol- Hmm. When I last looked into the image file linking in PAF 4.x.16 RTF exports, they worked fine, although with short filenames with Word97.
When I last peered into the image file linking in PAF 5.1.12 RTF exports, it was all screwed up. Period.
When I last looked at the image file linking in PAF 126.96.36.199 RTF exports, it seemed that it was designed for Win 3.1 8.3 short filename format. I was using Word 97 at the time to do my peering, and that was before I crashed PAF 188.8.131.52 with my experimentation. But the pictures appeared in said Word97, after a fashion.
If you have a version of Word prior to Word 97, you may be experiencing a rather amusing problem: RTF coding based on a later RTF standard, but with Short File Names!! Ridiculous! John
