Thanks, as soon as I tried to record the problem it started working properly!
Yesterday was the first time I used Pingendo, it was a clean install. I shutdown overnight and Pingendo is working without these glitches today, the images that wouldn't display yesterday are now showing up in the designer.
If I start a new project and save it to a folder, using the gaia template, and replace one of the images with with a local image it doesn't display, at first. But the images do display after adding another image, or re-selecting the image from the folder. Yesterday, no local images would display.
