    Why won't pictures show when imported via XML import to tagged frames? (InDesign CS6)

      Why won't pictures show when imported via XML import to tagged frames?

      If I import the xml structure element by element through the structure pane by dragging and dropping (and creating new frames) pictures are shown and linked in the document.

      If I tag the frames before and import the xml aftwerwards everything is there except for the pictures.

      This even happens if I copy the XML structure 1:1 by placing the first element out of the structure pane (picture is there) and afterwards importing xml again and selecting clone repeating text elements (first picture is deleted and the following ones don't show either).

       

      Quite frustrating because in every InDesign book that I consulted for this topic my workflow seems to work (the authors use older versions of InDesign).
