I'm trying to insert a hyperlink to an external file which is
i use the interface chose file, browse to the file and insert
it. when i get prompted to copy the file in to the project folder i
i use the preview feature in RH (CTRL + W) and the link works
fine. The problem is when i generate the flash help,
the link does not work on single click. if i do right click
save as works fine.
when i hover over the link it shows
"file:///C:/outpufolder/filename.xls" with no spaces and/or special
characters. the only difference i see is that in the preview the
link shows "file://filepath"
what would cause that third slash to appear in the final
My guess is the difference in link slashes or whatever is
simply a red herring. Odds are you are experiencing an issue impose
by the Mark Of The Web option. With MOTW enabled, links to other
content will fail when you test locally. The good news is that once
you deploy to a server, the issues vanish.
