Has Linking Stopped Working for Others?

Aug 1, 2012 2:20 PM

As of this AM, August 01, 2012, the ability to Link a URL seems to have ceased to work. The dialog box never goes beyond a black field, so no URL input box.

 

As of yesterday, it was working fine.

 

Have tried with Chrome and IE 7 & 8, with the same results.

    Testing to see if I can link the URL http://helpx.adobe.com/community/swapp/swapp-ipad-app.html

     

    It seems to work for me. Bill, is the link above active on your display?

    Yes, that's what I used.

    Trying it out with a link to Adobe.

     

    Seems to be working for me, too. Using Chrome and Windows here. I'll try from a Mac in a minute.

    Firefox on a Mac now. Link to Adobe Forums.

     

    Still working. Anyone else seeing this issue?

    I am not seeing it in Firefox/MAC, IE/Win7 or Safari/Win7.

    I have observed similar behaviour in the past (but not today).  The best way to cure it: wait until tomorrow...

    Hi Bill,

     

    Have you resolved it yet?  I've had no problems of the nature you saw putting in links, though it sometimes seems to take a few tries before I can get inline text to be made into a link.

     

    Here's a try:  I'm making the word link into a link in this sentence.  Figures, it works perfectly when I'm looking closely at it.

     

    The links need underscores, though.  That's a CSS issue.

     

    -Noel
