MapParts: FileExplorer as Template Element with predefined Link/Path

For only project, we use the same folder structure, and similar subfolders like:

In only Project Folder we use a project overview map (projectxy.mmap) with a map-part-reference to the content from the subfolder (/CORR or /GFX).

Unfortunatly, the link in the map part (file explorer, folder explorer, folder & file explorer) are defined absolute (C:/x/y/z/.../.../.../projectxy/gfx). 

We need to create a foder-explorer as a map part with a relative path (/corr), so he works in only project respectively only folder for any subfolder with the same name.

Is there e possibility to create or edit a map part in this sens, with a fix reference to a predefined subfolder (like "/GFX")?

When you create a link you can set it to relative or absolute via the link and advanced screen.

Unfortunately, I don't think this is possible as the File Explorer Maps Parts depend on an add-in so just modifying the path to a relative path would cause trouble as the add-in needs to be modified too to be able to cope with relative paths.
