Hi folks,

How can I reference custom images with the new SHFB? All tips I found referred to older versions where one has to set an additional include directory for the images but I got nothing to work.

If you're referencing it from an HTML file or from XML comments using an <img> tag, add it to the project using the Project Explorer.  It will be added with a BuildAction of Content by default and will be compiled into the help file.  If in a folder, it will be in a folder in the compiled help file.  If referencing it from a MAML conceptual topic, it's BuildAction needs to be set to Image and you need to give it a unique ID in the file properties.  See the Project Explorer help topic and its sub-topics for more information.
