Zim

Linking relative path names

Asked by Guillaume Rivier on 2015-08-05

Hi,
I have realized that when inserting a link and browsing to select a file, the link becomes a relative path to a txt file and is opened into an external editor. The link becomes :
Link to: ../../Home/mypage.txt
Text: ../../Home/mypage.txt

I would like to be able to browse, not only in an explorer way but also within the current Notebook arborescence, so that the links automatically become :
Link to: Home:mypage.txt
Text: mypage.txt
and opens in Zim.

Is this a setting, or a considered feature for a later version ?
Thank you

Afraid I don't fully understand what you are asking.
