Summary0002112: doesn't render relative path node images. doesn't render relative images when opening dot files.


The following graph ( and an image file (image.gif) located in the same directory.

graph G {
FOO [shape=square,image="image.gif"]

The above does not render the image "image.gif" when opened in

Using fully qualified paths works, for example:

graph G {
FOO [shape=square,image="/Users/local/Desktop/image.gif"]

Note that this *DOES* work with dot - if you render the file to an image with dot the relative path works.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a graph file with a relative image path, such as:

graph G {
FOO [shape=square,image="image.gif"]

Attempt to open the dot file in
Additional InformationOnly absolute paths work with

I couldn't get things like... ~/Desktop, or ./, or anything of that nature to work.
TagsNo tags attached.

The graphviz app now uses the new imagepath attribute. It sets this to the directory where the original graph was found. This makes the reasonable assumption that the image path specified in the dot file is relative to where the dot file is located. If not, the dot file can specify the imagepath attribute explicitly.
