I can't seem to figure out how to get a thumbnail icon to display in the quicktool area for my home made AOP's. The icon for the Presets display fine. What am I missing here?

The name of the jpg file has to be the exact name as your preset that's saved in the objectpacks. It has to also be located in your objectpacks directory in your DAP folder. I like using a 72X72 pixel thumbnail, but I suppose it can be made bigger.

For the icon that you want to show, though, you need to create an HTML file and place both the HTML and target image file in your Help director. Below's example of code that I use as a template for this. Oh yeah; the HTML file needs to have the exact same name as your preset as well, but the icon image file just has to be linked per the HTML file (so can have any name; since it's a different directory than your objectpack's directory, I just give it the exact same name as the preset). :)

<p>Purchased some shells and used them to make this one.</p>
<p>Cannot share this AOP since I used a commercial set.</p>
<p>Just way too lazy to extract this many shells so thanks to Johnny for doing that; well worth the $5.</p>
<p>Hope to have some fun with this one.</p>
