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.

I would like the more simpler thing hapened in new AC - the possibility to manually edit the path of the external files and modules...

The browsing costs clicks and time - while chnging the path - if the file is the newer version with slight change in name...od slight change in path - could be instant...

Best regards,

VERY Essential!!

Just copied a large project with multiple modules in AC onto a laptop and just saw that I have to relink each module. This doesn't appear to have been updated in release 13 either. If drawing manager can handle relative paths, why not the hotlink manager? More work for me.

Absolutely necessary, I often need to work from home and it would be really nice if Hotlinks can be transferred automatically.

Any news on this? It's been 7 years since this wish was created, but this problem is still haunting us today 😕

I'm reviving this wish as I feel it's absolutely ESSENTIAL (as clearly reflected by this poll).
Seems like it wouldn't be a hard one to implement but would be a huge improvement to the workflow.
As far as I can see, this is not possible in AC23.
