Insert asset

To insert an asset:

  1. On the toolbar, click Insert asset .
  2. In the Insert asset dialog box, search the asset you want to insert.
  3. On the asset tile, click Select.
  4. On the Select dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To select an existing public link, click select next to it.
    • To create a new public link, click + Public link. In the New public link dialog box, define your new rendition settings, then click Save. On the Select dialog box, click select next to the new public link.

Sitecore Content Marketing Platform (CMP)™ content creation does not support the visualization of several media types (for example, .ai files). Adding media of an unsupported type through public links inserts a public link to the original rendition instead of rendering the image. Using the medium rendition instead of the original rendition renders the image in all cases.
