Author biography without image

I have a girl friend who had a personalized column for the author's biography.
An html format column in version 7.5.1 does not show the photo. But a white box appears as if saying that she did not find the image
Will there be a solution

What sort of drive is "I:", if its an external HDD (like my I:) is it powered on, can Windows see it?.

It could be related to this ==>> 7.2 issue with image links...

But the changes Kovid made fixed this specific issue for me, and more importantly for the person who raised the issue in the first instance.

Added: I'm not 100% sure, but I have a suspicion that Windows may not like the images being in the root directory of a drive, or in one of its 'special' places like Desktop, Nethood, Temp etc.

If they're book specific resources I put such things into the book's data folder, if they're library resources I put them into the data folder of a placeholder book (author _resources, title Placeholder)

I agree with you, but it used to work on Windows
I leave you other images to find a solution

It is possible that the problem is related to this commit. IIRC it has something to do with jpg images using a different and unusual color space such as CMYK. The change is in calibre source but not in 7.5.1.

You can test this by running in debug mode and looking for messages of the form "unsupported image mode ..."

So if I understand you correctly the image is missing in the tooltip/book list only. It shows up in the book details panel and the comments editor?

This will likely be the same Qt bug with windows paths that I worked around for those two panels. Working around it for the tooltip is not as easy.

Can someone remind me why the Create link tool in Category notes is not the same as the Create link tool for Comments in MDE and the free standing long text editor.

Sorry for the stupid question, but how did you create the Author Bio icon with popup info?

Is this done by creating a new long text column? How do you convert that into an icon with popup?
Then do you have to create the note for every book or how do you auto add a single authors bio to all their books in the library?

I thought it might be the new categories notes, but that wasn't available in v6.28

Because images in category notes are stored in the category notes db alongwith the text.

Hello everyone, if Kovid the image with the configuration appears in the detail of the book

The column is long text and interpret it as html

Ok thank you.
I'll have a play around. I guess the icon and pop up feature will become obvious once I set it up.
Also looks like you have to copy the author text to each book? I thought it was a "write once, link automatically to all authors books".
Probably easier to write a note against the author, but no idea how to display that in a column in the library list.

It isn't hard to create a column that contains the notes for an author. Unfortunately there is the problem that a book can have multiple authors. Which one's notes should be displayed?

If you want to try this then you would create a "Column built from other columns". The "contains html" box should be checked. This template returns the HTML note, if any, for the first author for a book.
Code:
program:
	get_note('authors', list_item($authors, 0, '&'), '')
It is possible to use a loop to get the notes from all the authors, but I haven't tried it.

The performance might or might not be acceptable. The only way to know is to try it.
