Help With Hyperlinks!

110 Views, 6 Replies

Does anyone know how to fix the following:

In Express when selecting a hyperlink, it always opens a new window for the
target content. I want it to direct to a page in the same window that the
drawing is in. The same DWF works just fine in Whip! and VVE. In AutoCAD
2002, there doesn't seem to be a way to specify that the link should have a
"target" of "_self". It always assumes "_new" and there doesn't seem to be
a way to change the target. As this is defined as part of the hyperlink
definition in the DWF, there is seemingly no way that I can account for this
in the HTML page.

Would would Express do this when Whip and VVE do not? Has anyone else had
this problem?? Is there a workaround that I am simply missing???

This is especially frustrating because I am *very* close to being able to
support Express. This is the last issue and the only one that I have not
been able to account for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA,

:smileytongue:ete

I have exactly the same problem.

I think Express is great, but without proper hyperlink support it's useless to me.

This is a known issue. We have quite a few issues around hyperlinks all of
which are being addressed for the next release of AEV. We are planning to
get the next release out rather quickly.

If anyone has a timeline on the release it would be appreciated. We are
looking at moving from WHIP but want to make sure this hyperlink issue is
resolved first.

They are working real hard to get something out in the next month or two: they cannot give you a timeline until the issues at hand are addressed and tested.
