For starters, they are checked Include in Compile.
When I use custom text seperators in the Compile options nothing shows up in the compiled document at all. When I type “<$img:whateverthenameis>” in the actual text, it prints exactly that as if it were just text and not any sort of command at all.
Everyplace I’ve looked on the internet says <$img:name> is the correct syntax. But it absolutely is not working.
