PAW Image local folder

When designig a PAW Book, we can insert object types "Image": to show it, we have to put an URL which addresses the Image. To do this, we need to setup a new Web Server or use an existing one (if we have...) and place all you images onto this web server in a dedicated folder which is accessible over the web via an URL. Then we can use this URL in PAW as a reference for the image we would like to import.
We would like to have a local folder on the PAW machine to place our images there, whithout the need to setup a Web Server.

    In the new UI experience (PAW v58 and above) you allow the ability to upload images for applications and plans. These images must be stored somewhere with the PAW containers, so I would like to ask if this functionality can be expanded to allow for any image to be uploaded and stored directly in containers? This would remove the need for local web servers or hosting images on public websites. It causes lots of unnecessary IT issues at the start of a project, when you have to explain that you need additional web servers or hosted images on the internet.

    Also under Administration->Customization you can have an images tab to allow admins to remove any unwanted images and manage the content.


Ability to store images - and drag to PAW Canvas

Ability to store images in PAW or PAX, with the ability to drag them out into the canvas, instead of using an URL to render them.
