Detaching unreferenced Images

In 2007 I cannot detach an unreferenced image
I recieved base files from a consultant and there were images attached
but they did not include the images. The references tool palette lists the
image but when I right click on it and click detach it will not detach
I can detach the image with the command CLASSICIMAGE

No problem to detach "unreferenced" or "not found" images here. Might be
drawing related.

Hi David,



If the image file name has "[]" (sample_image[1].jpg) then the unreferenced
image may not be detach from External Reference ESW. Please use any of the
following methods to detach the image file.



(i) Use Classicimage command to detach the image

(ii) Remove the "[]" from Reference Name in External
Reference ESW and detach the Unreferenced image







Best Regards,

Mathavan

So you are saying to first rename the image and then detach it?

Hi David,
Rename only the reference name not the image file name.

Best regards,
Mathavan
