I tried to add an image to a design option and got an error saying that elements of that type cannot be added to Design Options. 

Is there a list somewhere of the different types that CANNOT be included in Design Options? I just want it for future reference and cannot find a list anywhere- in fact I can't find any references to this error at all.

Thanks!

Finally found something in the help file- although I did search that yesterday!

Unsupported Elements for Design Options

Levels: You cannot add levels to a design option. If you add a level to a building model while you are editing a design option, Revit adds the level to the main model. The level displays in halftone, indicating that it is not part of the design option. (See Halftone/Underlay.)

Views: You cannot add views to a design option. However, you can dedicate views to design options.

Annotations and details: You cannot add view-specific elements (such as annotations and details) to a design option. View-specific elements belong to the views in which they are created.

If you add a view-specific element while you are editing a design option, Revit adds the element to the current view, not to the design option. The view-specific element displays in halftone, indicating that it is not part of the design option. To see the view-specific element and the design option, change the design option settings for the view. (See Checking the Design Option Settings for a View.)

To annotate or detail a design option, dedicate a view to the option. Then add annotations and details to the view. (See Annotating and Detailing Design Options.) View-specific elements can reference elements in a design option. For example, you can dimension elements in a design option.
