hyper link won't work

Post by debrabb » 24 Mar 2020, 12:47

Quark 2018.
I have a multi page file with several hyperlinks throughout. In one particular article, the links I've created just won't work even though they are assigned the same urls as other links in the file which do work.

When I open the pdf and click on the problematic links I get the security warning :
The document is trying to connect to file:///Users/my name/Desktop/WQR2019/Sent3-23/website name If you trust the site, choose Allow. If you do not trust the site, choose Block.

When I click on the other links that do work, I get:
The document is trying to connect to
http://www.website name
If you trust the site, choose Allow. If you do not trust the site, choose Block.

So the ones that aren't working seem to be trying to connect to a file on my desktop instead of directly to the website...even though they have been assigned the same url.

What could be causing this?

Dunno. I think I would need a small sample of the Q file with even a single bad url hyperlink.
