[scribus] Collect for output

When I have used Collect for Output there is a sub folder named images that is created under the destination where the .sla is found.
You can open the .sla as text in order to determine the location where the new .sla file expects to find those images.

I must need more coffee. I just noticed that Collect for Output failed
to make copies of the graphics in the collect folder. That explains why
the graphics are missing in the copy of the .sla file. 

But why did Collect for Output not make copies of the graphics? In the
dialog box there are buttons to include fonts, color profiles and to
compress the files, but no option to include or exclude the graphics. I
just assumed that including copies of the graphics would be standard
behavior. If i send the collected folder to a printer they will
certainly need the graphics. Have I missed a setting somewhere?

Still can't figure this out.
