Ok,... I've looked at this again in 2013 IV Pro, and danged if it ain't ME proved wrong.  Existing categories, even in a read/write library with full Administrator's permissions, cannot be edited.  Not only the image, but the entire category.  Creating a new category gives you full options, but once it is created no dice.  This includes previously created custom categories.  AND this is not in "Merged View".

 

And.... here's why.:

I'm going to look into how this can be done from the server using this help page.  If I can figure it out I'll report back.

Might be a good idea for Autodesk to fix this problem.

In 2009 Content Center Editor, set the library view to your read/write
library. Right click on the appropriate category and select category
properties. From there you can browse to an appropriate bitmap. See
attached.

Does not seem to be fixed in 2013. I just tried. "Load alternate image" is definitely greyed out. Library is read/write.

 

I may stand corrected of course...

It works on mine.  Not sure why you are unable to do this.

Ok then. I stand corrected.

 

Care to give me a brief procedure? I may be able to troubleshoot my own that way...

I am aslo not able to load alternate images for category properties. Content Center is in the Vault professional and we use inventor 2013. All updates are installed.

 

Where is the problem?
