Summary0012480: Warn when some image is outside "images" folder
DescriptionPDF preflight checker could warn when some image is outside "images" folder.

When doing "prepare ouput and bring images together" ("Fichier" > "Rassembler pour la sortie"), all used images are brought inside "images" subfolder.
This has to be done to share the datas or save them for future use.

BUT it is still possible to edit the file and change some image, maybe use another image as the one in "images" subfolder. Its not possible to know that, afterward, and this leads to dangerous potential situation where it appears later that a used image has been "lost".

Since the PDF export is done at least when all is fine (but possibly before), its a good place to test whether all used images are in "images" subfolder.

In the meanwhile, here is the command i use to find files where some new images have been inserted since the last "Collect all images for output" :

grep PFILE= *.sla | grep -v "PFILE=\"images" | sed 's/^\(.*\.sla\).* PFILE="\([^"]*\)".*$/In 
\1, image has source file outside \/images : \2/'

Each resulting line displays the name(s) of a sla file that has to be opened with scribus so as to bring used images in "images" folder, and the source folder of the faulty images.

basically: very interesting to have an optional "official" images directory...
but i'd prefer a way to set/choose it (also) through the document settings and not have to first collect for output to have one...
