References Tab Links and Text Hyper-links
Apr 12, 2013
I hope someone can help me with this issue I'm having. I have been trying to hyper-link a pdf document using a text hyper-link and when I publish the course the link will not open the pdf. So I tried the pdf by placing it in the Resources Tab and it will open, which is a good think because I know it is not a security issue. Looking at the difference between the Resources Tab link string and the Trigger text hyper-link string I noticed that the Resources Tab string looks like this; \\psf\Home\Documents\file.pdf and this link works. Now lets look at the how the Trigger string looks; \\psf\\Home\\Documents\\file.pdf and this link will not work. Is there a programming reason why the Trigger hyper-link places a double back slash (\\) between each folder etc... and the Resources Tab string does not? I read the Articulate support comment that states "This is a known issue. It will not affect the functionality of your published Storyline content. Your file hyperlink will still work as expected." But I cannot figure out why I cannot get my Text Hyper-links to work. Please advise thank you.
