Boken links to attached resources

Hi. I'm newer to Storyline, and just learned (the hard way) that moving a .story file to a different folder breaks the URL links to attached resources. URL links are absolute vs relative. Ok. I understand. The problem is, when learning the software and reading the online tutorials, I didn't even think about that. Would it be possible to add a written "tip" or "reminder" about this issue in the "Storyline 1: Attaching Resources to the Player" knowledgebase? You can save others some time and embarrassment - especially with customers that are new to elearning and already hesitant about its benefits. Thank you.

Hi Len,

Are you using Storyline 1 or Storyline 2? Just wanted to check, as when you attach a document to the Resource tab it should stay with your .story file. We are aware of a recent issue in Storyline 2, where that link is not staying consistent - so that's a current bug our team is investigating. 

Also, I did want to share in terms of moving your project files, you'll want to confirm that you're working on local project files as described here.
