importing bitmaps

I am following the user guide instructions for importing bitmaps, in the PLE version for windows (XP).

The .bmp does not show up in either the camera view or the drawing view.

It does show up in the library, but clicking ‘edit symbol’ does not cause the bitmap to appear in either view.

I am trying to explore Animates support for ‘cut-out animation’, but I would like to be able to import drawings from other programs


Would it be possible to know the exact procedure you have followed to bring in your bitmap (each steps). There might be something missing in there.

Also do you plan on editing the image (cropping and such) or is everything previously clipped for your cut-out purpose?

Best regards,
