Hyperlink mystery

Post by jgold723 » 06 Jun 2019, 07:07

A bit of a mystery here. Working in QX2017 on an epub. I'm trying to hyperlink a title on the cover.

I've created the URL hyperlink in the hyperlinks pallette. I've highlighted the title and clicked on the newly created hyperlink in the pallette. The title now shows an underline. I export the book to epub and the hyperlink disappears. The title is not linked.

Other hyperlinks created the same way work.

I've tried deleting the title, creating a new hyperlink, but nothing.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

Hi -- just curious if anyone has an insight into this? I did discover that if you pry open the file and look at the individual pages, the first page/cover page is a single image. Is there anyway to control this, or is this an epub requirement?
