    can image source be a url in xml data set?

    rwdunnbvt Level 1

      When setting up an image as a variable using the data-driven graphics feature, it seems Illustrator only accepts binding variables to linked images using a path reference like: file:////Users/MyHome/etc/etc/image.jpg


      I have tried unsucessfully replacing the path reference with <img src="http://someimagesourceURL.jpg" /> in hopes that when updating the XML data set inside Illustrator, I could update image variables with images posted to a url.


      Is this possible? Does the xml need a different type of declarations section to allow url image paths to be recognized?
