An image cannot be removed from a menu bar or toolbar item in the Classic Mode UI Designer.  This functionality is important since when a toolbar item is added, such as when creating a new button, a default image gets assigned to the item, and there is no option to remove this image from a menu bar or a toolbar item in the Classic Mode UI Designer.


If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.0 SP1 HF17 or higher (16.0.478)
If using Reflection Desktop 16.1:
        Upgrade Reflection Desktop 16.1 SP1 or higher

Changes were made to these updated versions of Reflection Desktop to add an option to remove an image from a toolbar or menu item in Classic and ClassicMDI User Interface mode.  When a toolbar item is added, a default image gets assigned, but this image can now be removed by selecting the "Remove image" button.  A new image can be selected using the "Select image..." button and when the "Remove image" is selected the icon will change back to the default icon which indicates no image is selected.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly.  A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing.  It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.
