Re: background images

I usually use the preOpenCard approach with background images but have occasionally wanted to have a set of images on individual cards that do not change dynamically over time. In that case I’ve used an image that was NOT part of the background group. To create a new card (with a new image), I

Just import an image for a card and set its level to 1: no 'nonsense' about background images at all. Richmond. On 19.01.21 2:44, Tim Selander via use-livecode wrote: Right, which is why this is so confusing. I do not want a 'shared text' image. Each card should keep it's own unique image

That's what I do too. Each card has a custom property containing the name of the image that loads in preopencard. You may be remembering shared fields which can contain different text per card even if they're part of a group. -- Jacqueline Landman Gay | jac...@hyperactivesw.com HyperActive

Thanks, Peter. I added a little opencard script to load the image for each card, which is fine and solves the immediate problem. But I was quite certain that in the past, I had a stack, with an image control in a background that would keep a unique image for each card without scripting. I

This is driving me nuts. Have a 'background' group with an image. If I change the filename of an image on one card, ALL the cards change to that image. Yet a field in the same group properly will take unique values for each card. I know I've done this before... what setting am I missing??
