Compile with separate /image folder

astaga Hi, this is my first post.
Congratulations on a great product.

All my images for my eBook are located in a image folder.  Many folks/software structure it such to make file management easier in a design.

Is it possible to make Activ eBook compile with this setup? Copying all the files from the image folder onto a flat structure is not an issue.  However, admending all references to point to the flat structure can be tedious (eg changing all /images/***  to just /***  is ok for img src type lines, but also repointing SWF files, CSS entries, JS entries, and others can take much time).

Is it possible to somehow "map" the /image/ folder to the main root parent so that we don't have to do this.  This would be a great help and feature!

Many thanks for considering this....

RiffRaff Morning, Astaga...
Don't take this as gospel, as there as many more experienced Activ users than me out there, but I fear you'll find the answer is "no" - all files have got to be in one folder only.
I originally had the same problem with image and SWF file locations on my pages, and found the quickest way to amend was to use my HTML editor's "replace" facility.
