Hi, The feature you may be looking for is the "document root". It does not replace the attachment folder, but it gives you an alternative way to organize and link documents. You configure the document root folder in the notebook properties (menu File->Properties). Once set you can link to this folder starting a link with "/" (and dag drop links from this folder should be made relative in this way).
