This question already has an answer here:
When I compress my QGIS file with the folder containing all my shapefiles, how can I maintain the paths?
For example, I made a map on QGIS using a large amount of shapefiles. Once done, I save my QGIS file to C:\Users\Workcomputer\Desktop\New_folder
From there I compress the shapefiles and the QGIS file located in \New_folder and send the newly made .zip file to myself by email or dropbox.
However, when I download and uncompress the .zip on a different computer, the QGIS file is empty, and I have to re-path all the shapefiles, because they are now located in
Is there anyway to short-cut having to do this?
