|0017063: Display paths to links as relative instead of absolute?
|All image links in my document broke after I moved it to a subfolder and [this issue](https://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=14836) mentioned that paths in scribus are in fact relative internally.
Would it make sense to make it more explicit in the UI and instead of paths like `/home/user/project/images/image1.png` display them as `./images/image1.png` (assuming that .sla file is in `/home/user/project`?
That would affect dialogs like "Manage Images" or "Get Image".
|Steps To Reproduce
|Right now "Manage Images" dialog shows absolute paths, which made me erroneously think that scribus also uses absolute paths internally.
|No tags attached.
|In fact internally paths are absolute, it just when saving document they are converted to relative. And when loading again these relative paths are converted back to absolute.
|Thanks for explaining. I think that it can catch some users off-guard? If a path is shown as absolute you would expect it to behave as an absolute path and if it's relative as relative?
