    Default Graphics mysteriously go missing in preview?

    Working on this same small test site. Everything looks fine, preview works fine, and then at some point (editing, switching between design and preview), preview displays the dreaded boxes-with-xes instead of the actual graphics. Nothing has changed, nothing has moved, it's within an editing session.

    If I exit from NOF, get back in, and open the site again, everything is back to normal.

    I've been working on this site (started from scratch several times, sometimes I'm working for hours at a time, sometimes not) for the last three days and I'm not seeing a pattern.

    Publishing when the preview is wrong produces a site without the necessary graphics.

    When you add your graphics to the site, are they being saved in the NOF folder? If they're not, you'll get the box with the X. The program is similar to Dreamweaver where it's not brain/momery free and needs to have a property folder.

    If that isn't your issue, then it's a big in NOF. That's one of the reasons why I got away from NOF, due to things just not function. I'd put up a Guestbook that's made in the Java from them and sometimes it would show and other times it will not show. Not good if you're working on a client's website.

    The graphics are being saved where ever NOF puts them. This hasn't happened to me at all today, happened several times yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't get a screen cap yesterday (figuring it would happen again today) so I'm just having to describe the problem in my notes and hope my students don't run across it. Not betting on that, though.

    Preview would work fine for awhile and then it would just quit showing the graphics. I'd have made one little change to the site, and poof. No graphics. Exiting from NOF and getting back in always fixed the problem. This is on a three-year-old Win XP laptop w/2 GB RAM. Might be a memory issue.

    Meh, I doubt if it's the memory unless you are using a lot on that computer. 2gb should be fine. Do you have a lot on your computer? Yeah, that's what I didn't like about NOF over the years. It's not stable and can be unpredictable. What bothers me about NOF is this has been going on for years and they still haven't address this bug per new software. I hope that they do, seeing that the company owns the business again. WebPro had purchased several years back.

    Was using Snagit to take screen caps, Snagit Editor to edit them, saving to another computer on the network, browsers open. Occasionally Word open. Usual antivirus, etc. Am thinking memory leaks, but who knows? Saw it bunches yesterday, not at all today.

    Hi Liz,

    This is not a known issue or something we have run across in testing. Curious, are your images stored on an external drive or network shared location? If so, are you at any time losing connection/removing the drive/etc?
