How can we improve InDesign?

make book remember relative (to book file) chapter documents path

book should "remember" documents paths relative to book own file path.
After copying whole folder with book and documents files to new place, the book is opening chapters from old place instead of the one, that they are.
Just like it is in Framemaker.

To omit this error, you have to change the name of old folder.

    This would help the stress go down every year for my team! :D Great request!!
    @Kelly; I think that would work if it's checked when creating the book file, a "set it and forget it" kind of thing.

    We have to make a separate proof then relink all the files to the book...cross-references and all would need updating...such a time suck. If we make a "Proof 2" folder based on the original "Proof 1" and all the files are together in "Proof 2" why are you looking in "Proof 1" INDB?!!
    That's just my thoughts...
