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.

enter image description here

So I would like to know:

  1. 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.
  2. For opening an external file with action in properties->Action I use Open file with this action [% "Ref" %] where Ref is 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.

  • Using ./ will only be relative to the QGIS install root so it doesn't make sense in this context. – Nathan W Nov 12 '13 at 10:10
