Using relative links for external files

Is there any way to link to files using relative paths?

This would be very useful for synced folders. All I could find were ways to link to external files using absolute paths, which would not work here unless the synced folder has the exact same absolute path on all machines.

Simple example:

synced_folder/
├── documents/
│   └── file_to_link.pdf
└── vault/
    └── something.md

I now want to link file_to_link.pdf.

something.md:

# Works
[file_to_link.pdf](<file:///C:/Users/me/synced_folder/documents/file_to_link.pdf>)

# Does not work
[file_to_link.pdf](<file://../documents/file_to_link.pdf>)

Is it a syntax error on my part or is this just not possible?
