Setting the size ratio for image element?

Hi folks -

placing an image, within RLM Pro, you can manually set the size ratio. The usual suspects (image and image-link) don't offer that option. For now I am using the temp image link but that seems to be a throw-back to the RLM Pro technology - can't point it to a local resource, can only apply an export path/name statement. And it appears that the temp image link applied export path/name is not being inserted into the exported html. Instead, the generic svg reference is being assigned.

Sidebar- top menu, file, - seeing two exit items at the bottom of the file menu list and neither one appears to function as expected (no apparent result).

That is correct. In RLM, you are setting a ratio on a temp image that is an SVG. These are scalable. In RSD, you are now using real images and you would not set your ratio on the image element. That is done on the image itself before bringing it into RSD. This is why the Temp Image Link has a ratio setting because it also uses an SVG image which is scalable.

Hi Scott - thanks. That is good working design (auto-ratio) but for a 'slowly learning responsive' guy migrating from a couple months of playing with RLM Pro - a bit counter-intuitive. When I see a pull down with a variety of ratios (Image 4x3, Image 3x2, et al) I 'intuitively' think that the selected ratio will be imposed on imported images unless I reset it.
