Hyperlink to Open Folders

Post by rtbcomp »

It would be useful if a hyperlink could be used to open a folder in Windows Explorer.

You can specify the folder address in the "Insert | Hyperlink..." dialog:

Thanks !

I'd been using the browse facility to try to select a folder or entering the relative path directly, neither of which I could get to work.

Does entering the absolute path manually convert the path to a relative one with the check box ticked?

The "Suggest relative file paths" applies to the "File..." and "Bookmark from another document..." buttons.

You cannot use the "File..." button to choose a folder. But you can type a folder path manually (including relative paths). For example:

C:\Docs\Temp
..\Temp

Yup that works.

What I did wrong was to get confused by my directory structure, I was using ..\Folders\D when I should have used .\Folders\D

I'm moving from Jarte which is too slow due to the number of images I'm using and Atlantis is a definite improvement.
