DOC link won't open
I've been using Articulate for years, but this is a new issue for me. I upgraded to the latest version of Articulate Presenter and updated PowerPoint from 2003 to 2007 (and then the trouble began).
Absolute hyperlinks to webpages or PDF files work fine, but links to online Word DOC files do not.
Now, I think I know why this is happening. Normally, when I try and open a Word DOC I am presented with a pop-up asking me to save the file or open the file. You can uncheck the checkbox so you don’t get this pop-up again. So I did just that when I opened a Word DOC from another website. Now the Word DOCs open for me just fine in my Articulate training, but that doesn't help the 3,000 employees taking my training. Many of whom just see a flash when they try to click the many hyperlinks to Word DOC files in my online presentation.
My current workaround is to convert the links/files to PDF, but because these are policy files, I'd much rather users go straight to the real policy and not a PDF copy.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
