AFPUB 1.8.4.648  OS X 10.15.3

So that multiple computers can share the same Collections folder, I placed it on a networked volume (NAS). The volume itself has to be mounted, of course, before Affinity Publisher can "see" it.

However, AFPUB actually prompts for the first photograph in the Document Resource list - to locate it. You have to navigate to that volume and choose the Collections folder and then the first photo.

Now AFPUB prompts for the second file in the Collections. Well, you don't have to identify it, rather, at that point, just cancel.

AFPUB then scans the Collections folder and all of the files are now located and synchronized with the document.

Suggestion: AFPUB should "know" that the collections folder has gone missing. My suggestion is to prompt to "find the Collections folder" instead of finding the first resource file.  This is cleaner and one does not have to figure out that you only need to identify one resource and can cancel the rest.

Now - if the Collections folder is found, but resources are missing, then prompt for those files - a two-level check.
