Q - question

IMAGEATTACH reports Invalid file when attaching some SID images.

A - answer AutoCAD (2025 and older) reports the error "em>IMAGEATTACH - Invalid file. This file cannot be opened." when attaching images (but only some of them) in the .SID (MrSID) format. In addition, the image selection dialog is missing the preview.

AutoCAD will not open SID files with accented characters in the name. Rename the image file to standard basic ASCII characters.

For AutoCAD version 2024, the issue is resolved in update 2024.1.4.
