Anybody know how you can use the point to file target with the assets panel (select an image from the assets panel instead of the file panel)? I suspect it's a shortcoming and you can't do it.

Is it possible in dw cs3?

Many thanks

Yes you can,

Just as with any images folder you have in DW just from the PI scan the root folder (desktop) for the assets folder and take the image.
I dragged this and dropped it onto the document from the assets folder on your right.

Sorry file too big for upload!
Is this what you mean?

That's not what I mean, I'm talking about the assets panel (the tab that says assets to the right of the files tab), not an assets folder.

just tried it in cs3 and no you cant point to select but you can drag items on to your page from the panel. Is that what you meant?

Yes, that's a shame I'd use the assets panel a lot more if you could.

Thanks
