I'm trying to attach a hyperlink to a PDF but I keep getting the error message " AutoCAD could not open this file or could not parse a fle of this type". It also won't link to a Word document or speadsheet, but will link to a web page and a notepad text file. What could be the problem??
Just an idea, if you click-click on a DOC file or on a XLS file :
- Winword is loadind with the .DOC file ?
- Excel is loading with the .XLS file ?
I use OpenOffice for Word and Spreadsheets.
My main concern is linking a PDF. I need to attach a PDF of specifiactions for a particular appliance to the block of that appliance that is in the drawing. I continually get the same error message when I click the "Target" button in the hyperlink dialog box...
just for testing, rename you pdf to a simple name as "a.pdf", and create a local directory and put in there your renamed pdf, by image that you attached, I think that is a network directory, Z:\
Tries to hyperlink now and see if the result is the same.
