Links to pfd files

Oct 31, 2013


I have a problem with linking to pdf's. Who can help me out here?

This is what I want to achieve:

In my e-learning programm I have several pages where I refer to literature. These are PDF files. I want the student to be able to click on the link and then the pdf file should open.

This is what I did:

I put the links to the files in seperate text boxes, I placed the pdf files in My Articulate Projects. The titles of the pdf files only contain letters and numbers (no spaces or _)

This is what happens:

None, but 1, of the files actually open after publishing my project. The 1 tells me it should be possible to make it work!!

But it doesn't, what am I doing wrong?

This is the fault message: 

Error: Document Not Found
Document Not Found
Check to make sure that you entered the URL correctly.

I enter the URL's by: selecting text, insert hyperlink, browse to file and choose OK.

Thank you for looking into this!

Kind Regards

Additional Informations: The My Articulate folder is situated on a network. The link to the files become:

\\amc.intra\\users\\M\\mrichmond\\home\\My Articulate Projects\\L2PolicyMeetingamiataxonomySecondaryDataUseVersion.pdf

The one that works is a fake it is a link to a pdf online.... 

I read many other posts on this problem, I guess because I work from a network this is not going to work??

Hi Marijke,

To answer your question "...I guess because I work from a network drive this is not going to work??"

This is an older thread, but I believe it still holds true: Linking to stuff on a network drive possible?

and the recommendation is to do as Cristina has suggested above: link to the Resources tab.

Will that work for you?
