Hyperlinking with Navto://

Mar 24, 2012 2:43 PM

I am having very sporadic behavior when using navto hyperlinking. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Is there a bug?

    Are you using buttons, or text hyperlinking?

    Buttons seem to be 100% reliable in my practise.

    As Bob says, you have to share more details of your problem.

    Mark -


    Not sure if this is your problem - but I have come across a similar huge annoyance in that cutting and pasting hyperlinked objects from one document to another - say with a navto:// or an HTMLResource/ reference - maintains a reference to the source file.


    A very simple example -


    You have a two page folio - it contains an index page and a content page in both horizontal and vertical orientations.


    You create an object on the content_v.indd page with a hyperlink back to the index page - navto://index


    You then copy and past that object from content_v.indd to content_h.indd


    The hyperlink will not work on content_h.indd


    If you look closely at the URL of the pasted object in content_h.indd - the URL is - content_vnavto://index


    you would expect it to remain - navto://index


    but for some reason it prepends the name of the source file to the URL.


    There may be a reason for this - but i can't seem to find it - and it creates double the effort - which is a huge deal in creating multi page documents.
