    xref @href relative paths keep changing on save-as

    One of our clients is using DITA and whenever they save the document, it “fixes” all of the relative-path @href attributes on tags.  This breaks all of the xrefs.

    These documents are stored in Alfresco and also pushed to an XML database (eXist).  The relative paths are meant to point to other documents in this databse, but with the paths changing on save, the xrefs no longer work.

    I thought that under Tools->DITA Options->Update Content, I could just uncheck “xref/related-links” under 'Reference Types,' but that didn't do anything. (even after closing everything and reopening)

    Is there some way to stop @href relative paths from updating in xrefs on 'save-as' to a different folder?
