Relative paths for INCLUDEPICTURE, INCLUDETEXT, LINK, RD and HYPERLINK fields
Currently, relative paths are very buggy and unusable. People are forced to use workarounds and third-party macros as workarounds. Please fix it!

The lack of this 20th century feature is abhorrent. Plain clear....

Seriously, Excel - Word links are COMPLETELY USELESS without this feature.
Does anybody know is it fixed in recent updates in Office 2016/2019? (I'm most interested in fixing a problem with the LINK field).
Still using word 2011 because it works. Wish I could update software. Amazing all the new spicy things that office features that I have no need for
Yes! I strongly agree with this feature request!
I strongly agree that it's quite buggy. The tips&tricks I know are collected here: https://superuser.com/questions/622460/use-relative-image-path-in-word-2013/1212426#1212426 . The worst thing I still don't understand is those sudden picture size changes, as described here: https://word.uservoice.com/forums/304924-word-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/33188878-picture-size-should-be-kept-as-is-on-f9 .
From my (very biased) point of view, every "power-user" of Word should upvote for it. Because it's real shame and nonsense, that we need some workarounds to work with relative paths. (Even worse: many people, like me recently, tend to think that they _can_ use relative paths without workarounds. In fact - they cannot)
