I would like that my project would be portable, I mean that I can share it without lose all the path I have in my project. This seems not so easy and many times I have to reset all the path when I give the project, with all the folders with rasters and shapefile into to a colleague.
So I would like to know:
- can I set by default only relative path to the folder in which my project is (for opening raster and shapefile that QGIS can handle) and this remain relative even if I share the whole project to a colleague with a different operating system.
- For opening an external file with
Open filewith this action
[% "Ref" %]where
Refis the attribute where I write the file path. I supposed that writing the path with
./before the path (e.g.
./RASTER/test.jpg) could be use to create a relative path but this seems not working. Why? And this however would work only in Unix like system!
I'm using QGIS 1.8.
