Viewing a label in PDMWorks Workgroup Viewer

I have created a rectangular part which is the size of a label we need to use. I also made a decal which gets added to the part to show the graphics for the label. I apply the decal to the block in PhotoWorks and everything is fine.

How do I save the part in PDMWorks Workgroup so that the decal opens with the part and displays correctly? It works fine as long as the decal is located outside the vault. If I delete the non-vaulted decal and open the part, the graphics are gone.

If I checkin the decal and attach it to the part in the vault, I can open it correctly if I set "include attachments" in the "command defaults" tab of the "PDMWorks Workgroup Options" setting. I cannot find a way to do that in the PDMWorks Workgroup Viewer. As a result, the graphics are unavailable to anyone accessing the part thru the viewer.

Any ideas?
