How to change the names of graphic files placed in Baggage, so that you do not have to put them back in the content.

Hi Iwona,

You can't really change the name of files inside the Baggage directly, but your graphics files shouldn't really be stored there anyway. To extract a file from the Baggage, select it and then look in the lower right corner of the Help+Manual window, where you will find a button labeled "Save Baggage File As...". After extracting it to a different folder you can delete it from the Baggage.

The best place for graphics files are in a separate folder inside your project folder. Regular, full-sized graphics files are best not kept in the Baggage if you are using single-file .hmxz files, because they unnecessarily inflate the size of your project and can slow down loading it. In uncompressed HMXP projects they could be in the Baggage, but they don't need to be. Then the Baggage is just a normal folder inside the project folder, and it is easier and more efficient to create another one for your graphics.

Graphics files displayed in your topics are always exported automatically. They don't need to be in the Baggage for that.
