Q - question

Invalid path to inserted images?

A - answer When you attach an image to your AutoCAD drawing, full path to the image file is stored by default. It may be better to store only the filename (relative, path can vary).

In the image attach dialog uncheck the Retain path checkbox ("Path type" in newer versions). You can also edit the path in the Image manager (click on the Attach button) or globally using the "Reference manager" utility.
