Hi Lakegan

I am not sure what you are seeing, but you need to do something like the
following:

edit VList format statement (GLI: Design->Format Features), and specify
what you want to display. eg
<td>[link][thumbicon][/link]</td> will display a thumbnail of the image,
linked to the "document".
<td>[Title]</td> will display the Title. You can specify any metadata
inside [].

Then, you need to modify the DocumentText format statement. By default
it only displays the text ([Text]). If your documents are images, they
have no text, and you need to display metadata instead. e.g. try
[srcicon] or [Image] or something. Check the metadata in the Enrich
panel - this will give you an idea of what there is to display (Note,
more metadata is displayed in the Enrich panel in v2.70).

I hope this is enough to get you started,
Cheers,
Katherine
