Inserting relative, not absolute paths into image href

Hi, all...

Is there a way to tell Arbortext 5.4 to insert relative paths instead of absolute paths into the href when inserting an image into a DITA topic?

Thanks

seems like I get relative if the graphics are below the documents location
and full paths if they exist in a location above the document. The
grpahics path plays into what information is used to make the path as
well.

Hi Steve--

I don't know if there's a way to set that specifically for the DITA
application, but you can probably handle this with some custom code
using the graphicpathhook. You can look it up in the Help Center for
details on how it works.

Steve, make a search in the group on 'relative' term - there are quite a few discussions of the topic.

Steve, I just implemented this for my team in Arbortext Editor 6.0. I based it off this tutorial I found online:http://communities.ptc.com/thread/33169


You will basically need to write some custom ACL code in dita.acl.

I have some co-workers who are interested in this list. I think I was just "grandfathered" in to this list from the old Arbortext adepters list. I don't remember ever filling out an online form or anything to subscribe to this list.
I have no idea how to go about signing up. I know there are some links at the bottom of postings, but these appear to be more PTC-global and don't seem to be very useful for signing up for this list in particular.
Can someone tell me the URL for signing up for Adepters?

Try the link below. Under the Forum dropdown you'll find the Adepters section.

I see no Forum dropdown on this page. I see a username and password field to fill out. However, as a non-user, without actually having a username and/or password, this would not be very useful.

Sorry about that. Go to the login registration link from there. I've provided the direct link below.
