How do I make relative hyperlinks for copying linked template files?

How do I make relative hyperlinks for copying linked template files?

My team has very complex procedures. Some share the same sub-procedures. Right now, we're copying those sub-procedures between each of the procedures that rely on them. This creates duplication and makes our documentation infrastructure more difficult to manage by orders of magnitude. This predicament is diagramed below.

So, the natural thing would be to put the sub-procedure in a new box note, and have the procedures link to that box note via hyperlinks.

If we are to use this tree as a template though, copying the directory in which they reside, the hyperlinks of the copied procedures point to the template sub-procedure.

How do I make the hyperlinks in the procedures relative, so they point to the copy of the sub-procedure and not the template? If I cannot make them relative, what is an economic option to resolve this problem that doesn't involve manually updating each hyperlink?
