Markdown import folder with images in relative path does not work

I am using Joplin version 1.0.175 (prod, darwin). I have a large amount of markdown notes that are created using Typora which uses relative paths to store inline images. i.e. something like this image-20191112091112309

But when I import it using the “Import MD Folder” feature, the images are not getting displayed properly. Is this a known issue?

Yes, images are not imported at the moment. I guess they should though.

Just wanted to express support for this feature request. I also have Markdown notes with images (and even video) that I would like to import.

For plain images, I’ve used:

![Some descriptive text](relative/path/to/image.jpg)

For video, I used some HTML embedded i my Markdown:

<video controls>
  <source src="relative/path/to/video.m4v" type="video/mp4">

Yes, I had the same need and even thought about writing the feature myself.

Have the same requirement. Can't import images with relative paths.

I'm also migrating from other apps (Quiver/Typora/vscode) and have the same request for relative paths in markdown files.
Is this currently on the roadmap?
Seems to already be standard on github:
