Not "all" missing. There are some, e.g. in your-project.pdf
These seem to be PNGs relative to the document.

But yes, others are missing, e.g. in dtdx/document-v20.pdf

This seems to be consistent with FOR-635

Are you sure that you have followed the FAQ?

I investigated this again today. In light of Steve's comments
tried the current examples on various past versions of Forrest.
The bad behaviour is consistent.

Steve can you please try the example:
cd my-new-sample
forrest seed-sample
forrest run
and the PDF.

Then try adding your example. Tell us what happens.

I don't see any of the SVG generated PNGs in the PDF.
This is the same for me in various versions, see the comments

What is your localhost URI (i.e. the a@href) for the image
that works for you in 0.7 version?
