You can't, by design (for many reasons including the changing sla format,
bad experience with overly large and unreliable proprietary DTP file formats

Use the File->Collect for output option to collect all the files in one
location, then zip and attach. This will adjust the file locations in the
sla format so placing the files in the same location on the target PC will
work too.
