----- Changes in Pictures Thumbnails Viewer -----
new: The Viewer searches for original pictures beside the PTX-file when absolute links are broken for some reason. The Viewer does not change the PTX file itself. If you want to change the broken link permanently (it has sense for Tile substitution), please check the feature below.
new: "Permanently substitute missing absolute paths for PTX Tiles to existing relative ones" option is added to Preferences (Ctrl+P). The option changes PTX-files permanently. "Tile Substitution" and "Auto-Substitution after Deletion" features will use PTX-file folder for affected Tiles.
special note: If you use Pictures Thumbnails Maker (PTM), you may want to install its latest version too, because PTM uses its own instance of the Viewer. Windows launches the Viewer from the location from which the latest PTM or VTM launch happened.
