Try this:  C:\Users\DominicM\Desktop\421.gif.

Edit:  I hadn't tried this with an image file. That appears to be the problem, and I've reported it.

Okay, I'm feeling dumb. On RC2 I'm not getting either .png or .isf (proprietary) files to work. Unfortunately, when I expand the pane, the hyperlink box remains a fixed size. It also cannot be copied and pasted into a text so I can't take a screen shot to show the links that aren't working. I'm trying to see if I can get links to compensate for the lack of graphics and tables in Notes.

Of course, trying to create a clean example for you - one in which the link was both in the text and attached via hyperlink box to a descriptive text - the program crashed.1067.logs 7_23.zip

Note, however, you may want to pretend that there was no crash report - here or elsewhere for 4.0b RC2 ... the MP seminar is scheduled for Tuesday & Wednesday and we REALLY, REALLY want it to be 4.0b not 4.0a. I promise to keep my mouth shut Zip it!on any crashes (note: key board entry doesn't require me to open my mouth)Big Smile

I'll report the crash data. And it does seem that image file hyperlinks are not working, so I'll report that as well. Thanks.

I just found I was adding 'my' in front of the 'pictures' subfolder, so image files are opening now, however, I'm finding that the path is changing to 'file:///c/users' the next time I open the note file, so we're looking into that.  Are you seeing that problem at all Dominic or MJ?

yep changes to : file:///C:/Users/DominicM/Desktop/fif_a.png which is a proper hyperlink which I expected, please dont change it,  it needs to be that to open the file..

I think my problem on the broken link,  previously, i was removing the colon from the  hyperlink I was pasting in.. my error

That is good that your full path remains. Mine is dropping off the subfolders and filename for some reason to just 'file:///c/users'.  Thanks for the status update.

MJ/Melissa,

Dont know if this will help, I have this app (attached) which I use for making my hyperlinks, just drag and drop your file (any type) onto it you will hear a ping, and then your hyperlink is copied to clipboard, you can then paste directly into the hyperlink window inside Logos 4..

If it works for you, as it does for me, excellent, if not nothing lost..

underlying code (delphi)

procedure TForm1.FormActivate(Sender: TObject);

  function parseh(inbound:string): string;
  var t:string;
  begin
    t:=ReplaceStr(inbound,' ','%20');
    t:='file:\\\'+t;
    result:=ReplaceStr(t,'\','/')
  end;

var s,v:string;
begin
   if ParamCount>0 then
   begin
  s:=ParamStr(1);
  //
  if Length(s)<5 then exit;
  v:=parseh(s);
  if Length(v)>9 then
    begin
     Clipboard.AsText := v;
     Beep;
     Close;
     end;
  end;
end;
