I'm working on a multi-article folio. The first article includes a scrollable frame that contains a group made up of one image and two buttons.
One of those buttons works correctly; that is, it is a mailto that brings up an email client when clicked.
The other button should open a web page in a separate window. However, when I click this button, I get the following error message:
Cannot Open Page
This page cannot be opened because of a error.
The error is "A server with the specified hostname could not be found." (-1003).
The odd thing is that another button in the second article that links to the exact same URL *does* work correctly. That article does not use scrollable frames; instead, the button is on top of an image sequence. I have very carefully copied and pasted the URL from the button that does work to the button that does not work. No joy.
Here's a screenshot of the first article that shows the non-functioning button outlined in a blue frame:

Your help is much appreciated!
Hola, Bob! No hockey games on right now? ;-)
No, the link points to a regular old web page: http://helpx.adobe.com/community/swapp/swapp-ipad-app.html
And that link does work in another article in the same folio.
It happened to me too and the only workaround was that I copied the hyperlink text and created a separated text box and pasted the link.
I then made that textbox "fot frame to content". After that I created a button out of it and assigned the URL for it. After all this I pasted the button in the text as text object.
Here is a screenshot. This text was within scrollable frame
Bob Levine discovered that my problem had a simple fix: The button appeared in two places on the page, one of which was hidden. That hidden button had an old, incorrect URL. Updating the URL fixed the problem.
Bob - I've read your similar replies on a few different posts. Is there an article or further information on why redirects do not work (or are not permitted?) in Adobe DPS tablet publications? Thx in advance for your help.
