I am forced to work with absolutely referenced images all day, every day, and having to guess which image is which is a pain. Does anyone have a hack to get around this? Doing a global search/replace works, but it's a waste of time, especially when I have to do it twice for each file I work on, first to get them all locally referenced, and then to change them all back to absolute references. When you add in the time it takes to copy all the images to a temporary directory, it just seems really wasteful.
If there isn't a solution for MX 2004, maybe someone can tell me if Dreamweaver 8 has this same issue? I might be able to convince my boss to spring for an upgrade if I knew for sure this was fixed.
I would have just replied to this, but it's closed:
I work on tons of images each day, so saving an additional local copy isn't really an option, which I think is the only way creating a site with a default images directory would help. If I missed something in your post, definitely let me know...
jonrichd, thanks for the heads up. Pending other solutions, I'll be checking out DW8 this week, and convincing my boss to spring for an upgrade...
