Like any other property, which can be entered either directly or via XPath, simply click the XPath button in the toolbar above

Sure, but is it sufficient to change the source name? Do I have to import (embed) such images anyway? And which format should I use for the source name?
Thanks

I believe everything is covered in documentation. Is something unclear?

It's unclear how to change source path of embedded images. I want to exchange images (used as icons) dynamically. Those images should be "embedded" within design file. Using XPath to determine or change image source the "embedded" option will be disabled automatically.

This is correct: to embed image within design, MobileTogether Designer must know which image to embed, therefore XPath won't work.

I guess the purpose of image embedding was to eliminate load times? You can embed multiple images in a single XML file (you will need XMLSpy for this, which will pack them for you as base64). By setting Image Source Type to "base64" you can then access them directly from XML nodes.

Attached is small sample to illustrate
File Attachment(s):
Flags.mtd (6kb) downloaded 60 time(s).
Flags.xml (3kb) downloaded 60 time(s).

Thanks for clarification. Yes, the purpose is to make images available without accessing MT server first.
