links to other softmaker domuments

Post by dhlytle » Thu Aug 10, 2017 6:24 pm

I recently upgraded to Office 2016 v. 766

In 2012 I frequently use an index page to help me get to selected document quickly.

I am having a problem in 2016.
When I create a link, using the format option, it is created and works.
After I save the "Menu" file and the then re-open it, the link is gone.
I have put non-link markers on the page to verify that it is truly being saved, and the markers ("xxx") come though fine.
I have checked my Win 7 privileges, and I have admin privileges.

I see that that have been other comments about problems with links, but they do no reflect my issue.

I copied over a "menu" page from a 2012 file, and it seems to be working fine...

Suggestions?

Addendum by originator:

I opened the "menu" page imported from Office 2012 and deleted a corrected a link.
When saved, closed and reopened, the "corrected" link was gone.

In which file format are you saving the file? Not all file formats can keep links.

Thanks for the reply/request for clarification .
I was about to get discouraged.

To clarify, I am saving text documents as Windows\Word .doc (97-2003)

BTW, I have learned that the linkages work fine for web links in SoftMaker 2016, but do not work for links to another document.
Both worked fine in 2012.

I will send you a hotfix via PM that should solve the issue.
