View Full Version : LW 5.6 Modeler Backdrop, doesn't show

08 August 2003, 06:30 AM

I'm getting fed up with version 5.6 but I'm still waiting for Newtek to ship (they're so damn slow lately).

I am trying to add a backdrop to the my modeler (remember I'm on 5.6) but when I select the image (a tga file, as per my tutorial in the 5.6 manual) but it doesn't show up. The dialog box doesn't even register the image is loaded.

Any ideas?

- Desperately awaiting 7.5.

It sounds like a plugin isnt loaded

the file loaders are located in the "common" folder under plugins
