Summary 0012480: Afterflight checker : Warn when some image is outside "images" folder
Revision 2015-04-09 20:01 by JLuc
Description A new afterflight checker, or a possible project manager, 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".

[Edit] Since the PDF export is done at least when all is fine (but possibly before), the preflight could a good place to test whether all used images are in "images" subfolder. However, this check is not strictly related to PDF export.
That's why this report now mentions a new "afterflight checker" or "Project manager" that would provide this checking function.
