[libreoffice-documentation] Suggestion for Writer Guide and Getting Started Guide


Transfering suggestion from bugzilla [1]


I don't know how to request additional/change to existing documentation,
but allow me to suggest it here please: Request a paragraph or note
added to either Writers Guide 6.0 (existing) Note page 78, or Getting
Started Guide 6.0 (existing) Note/Tip page 338; at the end of one of
those Note(s) something like:

“Also, if relative links are enabled (via the menu Tools > Options >
Load/Save > General, e.g. with only “save URLs relative to the local
file system” checkbox checked) be advised that if the file is saved to a
different location than it was originally saved to: The file save
operation will automatically attempt to retain the original destination
for all the (document file) links, and that save operation will change
all the original relative links into absolute URL links. This is
expected design behavior and it is not unique to LibreOffice. If any of
the links are “Web” or internet links, then LibreOffice will not try to
change them, as they were not relative links to begin with. So if you
desire to retain relative paths in the document for hyperlinks to other
files: first save the document then copy and paste the document (along
with the linked files & path) to the new location/directory. That will
ensure that the “save to new location” behavior does not change the
relative hyperlink destinations into absolute URLs for the LibreOffice
document when the document will be opened in a different path/directory.”
