In the Metadata tab, click within the UIN field and rename the item to more easily find it when searching for it during test creation.

Supported media types include: gif, png, jpg, svg, and svgz. Edit mode will display the art. You may also use the TN8 Preview or Print Preview button to see a more accurate representation of how the art will appear.
For any art in any item interaction or stimulus, if you are using the .svgz file format, use Chrome and not Firefox to upload your images, since Firefox has a longstanding defect in regards to local handling of the .svgz format. In Chrome, you may need to save the item, exit the item, and return before you see the images rendered in Preview mode.
