I have several master - child files that I use at work. When I need to work at home, I copy the files, master and children(in same directory structure) to a usb. At home, when I open the master, all links to the children are absolute links, ie "file:\\X:\NetworkDirectory\MyDirectory\MasterDirectory\ChildDirectory\ChildFile.odt" , and not "file:\.\ChildDirectory\ChildFile.odt". This is true for both my Windows7 box and my OpenSUSe13.1 box. Both are using LO4.2. Is there a setting I need to have relative links, and not absolute?

Not relevant??? OK, outdated, but still relevant. Working on master-child format, have to transport files between devices including accessing on computers in the same network. On my machine, child file links are absolute and not relative. When a co-worker opens master on his machine, all links are red.

Can we get some help with this?

"Automatically closed as being outdated," as I probably did not get a response nor update the status of this question. But the question remains, is there a way to have the links relative and not absolute?
