# Images in Problems II

I am once again having trouble adding images to my problems. The formatting suggested to me in the comments of my previous note about this,

![alt text](http://imgur.com/whatever.jpg)


no longer seems to work.

I've tried the "Attach image" link in the lower left, but I can't get the image to appear anywhere in the preview. I'm not sure how it's supposed to work now. Help!

Sort by:

alt text

Works when you do your syntax:

![alt text](image link here)

Hi Matt --

1. I'll look into why the markdown method is failing right now.
2. The image preview doesn't show the image (yet) because at that point we haven't uploaded your image, so there is no way to preview the image :( We will make this more in the near future.

They seemed to have removed the ability to use the markdown links. If you use the attach button it works fine although it cannot be seen in the preview. As soon as you have posted your problem it will show up properly. · 3 years, 5 months ago

So wait, do I need to use the markdown image link AND the "Attach" button? Or just the button? Where will the image appear? Do I have any control over that? · 3 years, 5 months ago

Nope -- they are separate features.

1. Attach will simply put the image at the top of the problem/note. We may add more fine-grained formatting abilities in the future.
2. If you need to control where the image shows up, use Markdown. I just tested the ![alt text here](link here) method, and it works. If you are still having issues, can you send me a link to the problem that is broken?

Well, it worked, but only after I hit "Publish". In other words, it did not appear in the "Preview". (It would be nice if it did!)

Thanks! · 3 years, 5 months ago

Yeah—we are working on that... there are some technical hoops that we haven't found the time to jump through there yet. Staff · 3 years, 5 months ago
