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 -H 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.

+ Since i often split published documents in parts that each are in a subfolder, i have writen a more complex "slacheck" script, based on that grep command.

- ATM, it outputs also the embeded images as part of the images that dont have their files in the images/ folder. That is true, but not usefull.

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...

Since i've writen that script, i discover issues in allmost each of the documents (magazine issues) i've archived, which would make their later recovery a problem.
Having that option in PDFchecker would be a neat workflow security improvement.
