    The copy and paste of images into documents was incorrectly
    storing base-64 encoded image data rather than a link to an
    image resource managed by the server. The template
    processing was incorrectly handling this case as if the data
    were a url link.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The template processing code will not perform link fixup if
    the img element contains encoded data rather than a resource
    url.
    Note that although the product has been fixed to no longer
    store encoded image data, this fix is necessary for
    pre-existing cases such as templates that were created prior
    to that fix being introduced. There is also a "repair" tool
    available from Support that will extract any encoded image
    data, store it on the server as an artifact and then update
    the reference using the url of the new image artifact.
