Thanks everyone for the great suggestions! I'll let you know it works out. (I got pulled onto something else but I should get back to this soon.)

I'd suggest trying this: "N:/Departments/Financial/January2014.fm" It ought to work just fine in Windows - which converts the single forward-slash appropriately.

I'll try it with Unix pathnames. Actually, it's a link to another drive (N) and then a path down to the file.

When you are in the marker window, you are typing in a dialog box, and FrameMaker follows the rules that are documented in "Appendix A: Typing in dialog boxes" in the FrameMaker manual. The table that in that appendix lists the code for typing a double dagger as "\Shift+d", and for a florin as "\Shift+f", which is exactly what you've typed. Second, I assume that you intend \D and \F to be drive identifiers? I don't think this will work because I believe that hypertext markers expect Unix-style pathnames, not Windows-style. And since drive letter mappings are local to each machine in the Windows world, there's the potential that these drive letters could be mapped differently on other users' systems, which would break the links. -Fred Ridder ________________________________ From: pchristen...@ftportfolios.com<mailto:pchristen...@ftportfolios.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> Subject: Using a backslash (\) in Hypertext marker Date: Mon, 5 May 2014 18:29:54 +0000 I need to create a hypertext marker for Open Document & Fit to Page. The problem occurs when I enter the path for the document in the marker window. The characters \D are replaced by a double dagger and \F are replaced by the florin symbol. I've looked at Adobe's documentation on hypertext markers and it doesn't mention this behavior. Does anyone know how I can get the marker window to leave the text exactly as typed? I'm using Frame 10 on Windows 7 Professional. Thanks. Pat Christenson Resource Coordinator Fitzgerald Marketing and Communications pchristen...@ftportfolios.com<mailto:pchristen...@ftportfolios.com>
