Feature request #12788
Absolute path to images in composer
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
It would be nice to be able to save the absolute path to the images you use in a composer, and espacially (more needed) a composer template.
This would make it possible to save a standard template on a shared directory, and be able to let it use by all the QGis-users in all of their projects. In this way they don't have to worry about the format, logo's, even if the company-logo changes; you just change one file!
Now it is always a relative path in the .qpt-file. So if you change the place of you qgs-project, or you us a project in another directory, loading the template gives you a 'red cross', the link is not found anymore due to the fact it's a relative link..

However, the feature request stays especially because one could want a template to be used by different users in different projects.
As an extension on this request I'll add a new request to be able to choose the setting 'absolute' as a default in all projects (in Project - properties - General - Save path). Now in every project one makes, 'relative' is set. To be able to set as default 'Absolute' (or 'Relative') would be nice.
