Relative Path option for Hotlinked Modules

When placing an external Drawing it is possible to store its path relative to the Project File.

I would like the same option for Hotlinked Modules.
So when the Project File is moved from one computer to another the Hotlinked Modules will be found even if the Project files and Hotlinked modules are placed into a folder with a different path on the new computer.

Then I would not have to relink many-many hotlinks in the Hotlink Manager.

Seems like an easy task for me. I hope it really is.

This seems a fairly straightforward and very useful configuration, especially as we move to more hot-link use. I recall doing something similar with a client app to find the parent db file on the remote server by storing the UNC formatted address.

Hi team,

Is there any update on this topic, Im working with holinks modules and everytime my colleague publishes them from a different PC then I need to relink them one by one as the modules show missing....IS there any solution to avoid this? Or is there any way of setting hotlinks modules to relative path?
Thanks!
