Rondi,

Thanks for your answer but it doesnt work. The Edey reference says literally:

"The only reason that the standart rich edit component doesn't support images is because it is the Rich Edit 1 implementation while the rx rich edit is the rich edit 2.0 implementation".

So maybe I need to download the rx components to use images with RichEd. Am I Right?
