Hyperlinks to other Word documents in same folder break when folder is moved.
This has been the most frustrating Word glitch I have ever found but only because all the documentation I have found is crap.
I have a group of Word documents in the same folder.
I create links from one document to the other.
When I move the folder all the links break.
I have been trough all the documentation about relative and absolute file paths. In one document I read it said that if you want to be able to transport Word files with links to each other you check "update links on save" but in another document I found it says you have to uncheck that to transport your data.
I am currently using Word 2013.
Is there anyone our there who can tell me how to stop my hyperlinks between word documents from breaking when I put the folder they are in on a USB and take it with me to a new location?
The most frustrating part of this is that I have toggled back and forth between the two settings for "update links" and it made no difference. Does the setting lock into place forever if you have many hyperlinks? Do I have to get rid of all of them and start over for the setting to work.
An absolute answer to this issue seems impossible to find - even with Google....
- Numerous sites with this exact question and conflicting answers that do not work.
- Numerous sites with this exact question - ending in a frustrated statement that no one can answer the question.
Anyone who can solve this one is truly hard core.
