Some Questions About Exporting Komponents

Hi. For the first time I am considering exporting and making a komponent I have created available to others. So I have some questions:

  1. While exporting, I see an option to export “As Image”. I have no idea what this really means. And if I try to do it, I always get an error. Can anyone explain what this is for?

  2. In my own working copy of the komponent I have inside the editor, I have some global variable values set that would not make sense or be accurate for others. One example is the IP:Port address of a server on my LAN. What is the best way to clear these values and do the export without messing up the komponent I have in use for my own purposes?
