Relative file paths for bitmaps

hi there - nice job!

Bitmap files seem to require an absolute path which is problematic when using build machines with different configurations.
Would it be possible to implement relative paths, i.e. filename or .\filename instead of drive:\dir1\dir2\dir3\filename ?

Thanks! mike

You're right, I've completely missed it.

Absolute paths are always problematic, no exceptions 😉.

Will add a selection dialog to allow both relative and absolute paths...

Could you please test the attached test version and confirm that it works as expected?

If so, I'll release a final version; otherwise I'm all ears for suggestions...

works like a dream - good job!

thanks and all the best, mike

PS not important but the bitmaps remain locked until the app is closed - many apps do this, especially micro$oft!
