I am using a Win XP PC and Adobe Reader 9.3.4
Adobe Reader says it cannot find a file even though it gives the correct file path and spec in the error message??
In LaTeX I am using the hyperref package to produce a pdf document called questions.pdf
CASE 1) My questions.pdf contains the following instruction.
The file and directory arrangement is ...
The user clicks on questions.pdf, then within that pdf document, when the user clicks on the magenta star (the link), answers.html starts up in the browser. Perfect!!
CASE 2) My questions.pdf contains the following instruction. This time answers.html is in a subdirectory relative to questions.html
The file and directory arrangement is...
The user clicks on questions.pdf, then within that pdf document, when the user clicks on the magenta star (the link), answers.html cannot be found.
The frustrating thing is that Adobe Reader gives the correct file specification in the error message when it says it cannot find the file!!??
I have tried enclosing the file spec within various quotes etc., but I cannot get this relative file spec to find the HTML file. I would like this to work so I can apply some structure to the file layouts for this job.
Any help much appreciated.
Reader 9.3.4 can't open linked files that in sub directorys(and any other directorys), but if you move the files to the same directorys where the pdf is, they could be opened. Other people in forums met the same problem(
http://forums.adobe.com/thread/714892?tstart=0). I guess everyone will meet the problem when they click links in a pdf that point to the files in other directorys. 9.3.3 seems haven't the problem.
So, the problem is that Adobe Reader 9.3.4 is broken.
I will drop back to an older version of AR. I will go off now and try to
figure out how to get an older version :-)
I will also add weight by reporting a bug to Adobe.
You have been very helpful.
