Problem Printing Images in Open Bible Stories
Posted by: Mondele

Some people will have a problem printing Open Bible Stories because the pictures don’t appear. While we are working on a better solution, here is a workaround.

Download the zip archive file from

Take the `.jpg` files contained in the archive and move them to the appropriate folder on your computer.

  • On Windows: `%localappdata%\translationstudio\images\obs`
  • On Mac: `~/Library/Application Support/translationstudio/images/obs`
  • On Linux: `~/.config/translationstudio/images/obs`

Once the images have been copied to the proper folder, you should be able to print Open Bible Stories from translationStudio on that computer.

This article will be updated once the problem has been resolved.
