For once I cannot agree with you, Alain.
If I am using image_maps or df3s and don't use the full file paths. I 
would gave to copy the images or df3s into the current directory. In the 
past when I did not use the full file paths. I ended up with multiple 
copies of the same file in scores of locations. Considering the number 
of image maps Poser can use. It is a waste of space and be confusing.
