Yes, you can add any type of file (DOCX, PDF, etc) as Media but only image files (JPG, PNG, etc) will display in FH Media windows, Diagrams and Reports.

The triangular Open in Editor/Player button must be used to open such non-image Media files.

Now to move the C:\user\pictures into Media files.


I do not recognise C:\user\pictures as a standard Windows folder.

Are you sure you have posted it accurately? It is important to get that folder path exactly right otherwise my instructions will not work.

Are all the images located just in that folder or are they in various subfolders?


Please post a screenshot of the Tools > External File Links window showing all those C:\Users\... images in full.

You may have to make the window larger so that all filenames are shown fully.

Hi Mike thank you for your advice on removing all the things with a red X, this I have done, now I still need your help of converting C:\user\pictures into Media files, thank you for your patience in helping, but it is not all wasted, as I am taking notes to use later, by the way (another question) can I add word documents to my projects? thanks again
