Are you using a Field member or a Text member? Field members do not have kerning, line space or hyperlink properties, so these cannot be set. The corresponding zones in the Text Inspector are thus disabled.
Use Insert | Media Element | Text to create a new text member. Do the zones in the Text Inspector work correctly for this?
It sounds as if the file Configuration/Props/Members/text.txt has become corrupted. This is the file that determines how the properties for Text members appear in the Property Inspector.
Does it help if you re-install Director?
A workaround would be to set the hyperlinks via Lingo. Example:
vMember = new(#text)
vMember.text = "Word seven is to have a hyperlink attached to it."
vMember.word.hyperlink = "lingo:alert'Hyperlink clicked'"
Place the new member on the Stage, then drop Chris Walcott's "Hyperlink - General" behavior (from the Text Library Palette) on top of it. When you run the movie and click on the link, an alert will appear.
Thanks mate! I re-installed the program. The Text Inspector works fine now.
Thanks also for the scripts.
