Easiest way to reload image file from disk?

Hey guys,

what is the easiest way to get Synfig to reload the image file linked to an image layer after having changed it externally? I tried some ways, i.e. setting a different path for the “filename” flag or simply choose the file in question again, but that didn’t do it – Synfig seems to buffer the image internally. Is there any way to clear this buffer?

The only thing that worked somehow reliable for me in this regard is the “embed layer” option, but this is cumbersome, since I don’t want to embed the image.


The fastest way is often to close and reopen your scene.

Hey rylleman… Thanks! Oh… my… god… this is so simple and straightforward that I feel really stupid now! :smiley:
