I'm using the offline version 5. 

I've opened my Test.sm file. In the same folder as Test.sm, there's another folder called img.

The picture called pic.jpg is in the img folder.

In the start node, the macro is
<<picture '[[File: img/pic.jpg]]'>>

I get the error message "You must specify a folder for the local media."

I don't see a way to choose a media folder within the utility, so I guess I'm just linking wrong.

Any ideas?

As an addition, if I put the picture into the same folder as Test.sm and set the macro:
<<picture '[[File: pic.jpg]]'>>

I get the same error.

Ooookay, I think I've solved this myself by finally clicking the "Add" tab and seeing how media gets inserted. Maybe I need to skim the documentation again, cause I don't remember this at all!

I know this board isn't active but I'm very impressed with version 5, and I love the new layouts such as "visual novel".

This makes Axma very viable and, at least for me, a great alternative to Twine.

I'm actually ready to buy the license now, I can see it pulls up a PayPal page, I hope the developers are still active - that's the only thing holding me back. I even go on the website and read the translated blogs. 

Anyone purchased AXMA recently, or anyone able to say Hi and verify that paying for the Pro account is still a viable option?

Hello,

You must use this link at the bottom of the screen: "Set a folder for local media".

Ah! I finally found it at the very bottom. I found using the automatic links on the top left <<>> and [[]] where it brings up a dialog box automatically are very helpful. 

Now my only other question is I wanted to verify I can still pay and unlock the direct HTML export feature. If I submit a payment (from the US) via PayPal that someone is still there to authorize unlocking the software.

I have upgraded to 5.x recently on both my Mac and PC.
