I have a Powerpoint presentation that does not open linked documents when in Slide Show mode. The documents open find when in "development" or normal mode.  Is there a way to get the documents to open in slide show mode?  Currently when i click on the icon it goes to the next slide.

What version? Are there a lot of links (200+)

If you hover over the link does the pointer change to a hand?

I am using Office 2007 and the pointer does not change to a hand when I hover over the link.

There is an option in Powerpoint called "Action Setting" which gives you the option of what you want to do with a link.  Choose open and this will cause the lik to open when you click it.
