I’m just starting to investigate using Document References, and I just wanted to make sure I’m not missing anything - are file links there only absolute? There’s no way to get a relative file link?
I thought it might be useful for me to use Document References to link to completed/compiled versions of the documents I work on in Scrivener, link to invoices, receipts, any other supporting documents. I envision a great system where my documents are all linked to everything they need to be linked to and quickly available and it’s wonderful. But I don’t necessarily want or need to actually import that stuff into the project itself - for instance I’m thinking that would just make it more difficult to find the files again from other programs, say if I need to email them to people, whereas if they’re linked by Document References it’s just a couple of clicks to email any file.
Why relative links are important: each year I start a new top level work folder, so I’m currently using 2013. At the end of the year that folder gets dropped into my Archive folder and I’ll start a 2014 folder. But if Document References are all absolute then all my links will break when I do that. And I’d need them to work come, say, tax time, or whenever a client loses a file and needs me to resend it (happens frequently).
