This should probably qualify as a rant, as I have just fixed the image URL's on a webpage several times, only to have Composer jettison them each time upon saving to my hard drive.
Where is the default setting that will invariably uncheck the "URL is relative to page location" box ? I want the full image URL in the Image Properties field every single time, without fail. Even when I put the full path (on the image server, of course) with the image SRC, Composer wants to truncate that path to just the file name. That will never do in my case, because I have found that it is essential that I upload the images before starting to create the webpage. I then open each image in Mozilla Firefox, capture its full URL, and then paste that into the Image URL box in Composer when I'm inserting the image in my webpage. Even when I do that, Composer takes it upon itself to automatically check that "URL is relative to page location" box and throw away all my hard work when I "save" the webpage.
The only way I have been able to break this "Lucy and the football" cycle is to view the webpage as HTML (i.e., in text mode) and then save it once & for all from there without ever going back to "normal" Composer edit mode.
I'm using the debian flavor of linux on a PC with plenty of RAM and hard drive space, although I hardly think that matters to this discussion.
