    Default image file reference field question

    If I set a field as an image file reference, and use the alpha option in settings/preferences for images, when you are selecting the image, alpha lets you see a preview window, but it always displays as absolute. For my client to see a realistic view of the picture he has to click on "best fit" each time. Is there any way one can set "best fit" as the default.

    Placing the image on a form or report is not issue, as you have the option for best fit for the object - its only in selecting that its an issue.

    if you use the windows option in settings, then it will always make bmp as the default type and there is no preview - so the user ends up with an irritating choice he has to make each time he selects an image.

    Although the Alpha option is preferable because of the preview, a 2nd best choice would be windows with it defaulting to jpg instead of bmp
