fpic object doesn't keep his size in presentation mode in Live

I’m using a basic fpic object with a jpg that is placed in the same folder where the patch is.
the path inside the fpic is: ./xxxx.jpg
when I set it and close the inspector window, it is ok: the size is correct.
I save the patch, I set “open in presentation”, resave it and close it.

and in Live, I have a little jpg :-(

any ideas? bug? bug in my config?

Did you define different patching_size/presentation_size? Does it display properly in Max in Presentation mode as well? could you post an example?

patching_rect & presentation_rect are correct until I close the edit mode.

I test in max.

no prob in max with the same object and the same pic.

I have to add a clue I didn’t thought about it was a clue…

in the folder where the patch + pic are, there WAS another pic named differently (of course)
it was the same pic, but smaller.
I removed it and set the correct path/name in the fpic object… but I just see it takes the previous pic!
I mean, I guess it doesn’t reduce the current (and only one) pic in the folder… It seems it takes the previous one.

is there a cache? a temp folder ?

The name is probably cached somehow in the search path. But if they don’t have the same name I don’t see any reason for this to happen. You might also want to check the Dependencies window and make sure that your picture is included properly with your device.
