Description Jared B. 2014-02-01 21:35:32 UTC
I'm working on adding my video game collection to Tellico.  I already have high-resolution cover scans for all of my games saved locally, so rather than duplicate all of that within the Tellico collection, I use the "Save link only" option to just add a pointer to the existing image.

This option works great for normal viewing, but it causes a problem when I generate reports.  Specifically, for every game with a linked image, I get this error message while Tellico is generating the report:

Tellico is unable to write the file - Banjo-Kazooie%20(Rev%20A).jpg.

After clicking OK a few dozen times it finally renders the report correctly.

If I edit a game a remove the image, the report generator no longer complains about that game.  If I assign an image without enabling the save link only option, it also no longer complains about that game.  Every time I try to use the save link option, though, it complains.

It would be nice to get this fixed.  Being able to generate reports of particular subsets of games are important for what I'm trying to do with this collection, and repeatedly clicking OK over and over again isn't exactly a ton of fun.  :-)

Please let me know if I can provide any additional info that would be useful for debugging.  I'd also be happy to help test any patches.
