Querying images used in a document in a schema-agnostic way in Slack thread.

Hey folks - I'm building a custom color input with recommended swatches based on the images used in a document.
It's working great - except I haven't been successful in querying images used in a document. It'd be easy to make it schema specific, but I would like this to operate agnostic of the document schema, especially since my project uses portable text with image fields extensively.

I've tried
*[_type == 'sanity.imageAsset' && references($docId)]
but it runs an empty array despite at least one image being used on my document.
Seems like
isn't returned in this way whatsoever.
Is there any method for doing this sort of thing or am I right out of luck? Thanks!!

user Q
. The query you wrote means "if type is
and it references the document ID", which is the opposite order of what you want, I believe.I'm going out on a limb here, but maybe
*[_type == "sanity.imageAsset" && count(*[_id == $docId && references(^._id)]) > 0]
might work
