Do I need to uninstall Sigil?

I just got Sigil. I tried to learn to use it on a junk manuscript, so it put junk stuff in a folder, including HTMLs and .JPGs with odd names I assumed were normal.

I completely cleaned out the folder to start over. I reopened Sigil and went to load a manuscript I wanted to publish. Now it always loads without images and when I try to put images in it says there are no images available. I've tried to paste an image into the view of the HTML, but it ignores the paste.

I figured by clicking on "Image" I could find a place to input images. NOOOOOOOOOOO!

Also I can find nothing about how to put in a cover photo.

I'm guessing this is one of those apps that hide secret data somewhere on your system, so do I need to uninstall it and start over?

Of course if it's stashing data it probably won't REALLY uninstall everything.

To allow multiple use of images (example chapter headers, scene breaks) , placing images is a 2 part process in 5.x

Because of a 5.1 bug, use the File menu to add a image to the Book Browser

Once the Image is available, you place the image (1 or more times) by using the Image icon and selecting which available image to use.

That's what I was already doing. I click on an image listed on the File Menu and I get 4 little squares in the text window, but trying to do an image STILL gives me the error saying "There are no images to add."

Sigil will not automatically load all files in a folder. If you upload a html file which already has references to the images, the images will autoload (if they are at the right location).
