Default file management in pageplus and webplus

In general, software like webplus and pageplus (I use both) use a lot of external files. Not all of them can easily be embedded, because of size and maybe other reasons. Some sort of file management would be a great blessing, like copying all attached files to a resource folder or even removing all files not used (anymore) from that folder. Such a function proved very valuable in other software (f.i. www.mobjects.com). Mobjects warns for any attached file not residing in the standard resource folder structure, offers to copy them there and is able relocate this resource folder, leaving all non-used files behind. So maybe you can put this on the wishlist for any future version, it would augment professional/efficient use of Serif software greatly.

PagePlus already has this — it is called "Save as package" and saves fonts as well as images.

WebPlus needs the same feature.

Save as a package is not the same thing, it's ment to store all linked files into one archive for transportation. To make it work, one has to pack and unpack each time you want to have all files in one location. Essentially it is a work-around. But you are right, it is better then nothing as in Webplus.
File management takes care of the need to keep an oversight and grip on all related files while working on a project.
