    Hyperlink filename restrictions?

    RichBwriter

      I am running RH7 on XP Pro. I am working with all files on my C: drive, not on the network.

       

      When I attempt to create a hyperlink to a file, sometimes the file is accepted by RH7 and sometimes not. In other words, when I double-click on the file I'm linking to, sometimes the path and filename appear in the File field at the top of the Hyperlink window... and sometimes they don't. It seems to depend on the length of the file name - seems like 9 characters is the max. It also seems to depend on the file location - works better when the file is in the same folder as the rest of the project files.

       

      I haven't been able to find this in the RH documentation or on the forums. Is there some sort of restriction on file names and/or where the file is stored?

       

      Thanks!
