Well I only got the new version today so couldn't try this before and also
everyone else has only just got it so give us a chance!
This is clearly a bug and one that Simon will no doubt sort out in a patch
fairly soon, judging by what normally happens.
I believe the way around this is to set the source picture size, then close
the report and then reopen it. It only seems to notice the picture size has
changed next time the report is loaded.

Subject: [FHU] Impossible to size source pictures so V3 being returned for a
Well, I have now spent most of today and yesterday attempting to make a
picture linked to a source print at more than about an inch and a half
in reports. I have yet to find a way to do it and as no one has replied
to my mail to explain how it can be done I assume that it is a feature
that must have been removed from version 3. It seems strange though as
the box to enter a picture width is still there. This is a real
disappointment as I cannot see any point in producing an upgrade to
software if some of the features of the original have been removed. Who
cares about all people diagrams and flags if you cannot source your data
in a way that people can understand and read!
Therefore, with a great sense of regret I'm going to return my version 3
of FH for a refund.
