I am having a similar problem.
I design irrigation systems. and I download an aerial image of the farm plan and I place it under the GPS capture of the farm, this aids us with things that the GPS capture doesnt show. I have inserted the image with full path and with relative path, and also as both, but in it's own layer, and 9 / 10 I have to re insert the image when I open the file up again. I've even locked the layer once the image is in place but still it wanders away All my files are saved locally, so there is no moving them around.
Can anyone suggest a work around this so it doesnt happen?
its a pathing thing..like xreffing...
if the drawing is not hard-pathed you need to reload it by means of xref dialogue box....(even if its an image)
or if not...
and you use the 'PROJECTNAME' system variable ......you need to go to the options dialogue box ..Project Files Search Path..and browse to establish a path.
