As Fred says, this is designed behavior. See Chapter 19, "Hypertext and View-Only Documents" of the User Guide, particularly the "Preparing areas for becoming active" section. Reading this won't necessarily solve your problem, but at least you will understand what is happening.
Rick Quatro Carmen Publishing 585-659-8267 www.frameexpert.com Hi! Seems like I've found an odd bug with hyperlinks from generated files when I "print" an unstructured FM book from FM 7.1 to PDF. I have found that when I print a FM book to PDF, the page numbers in the TOC and index are automatically converted to hyperlinks in the PDF. The text of the entry is also converted to a hyperlink. Thus, when I move my cursor over the entry or page number in the PDF file, it turns from a hand to a pointer. However, if the entry's text is not in the default paragraph format for the entry, this automatic conversion doesn't happen. For example, if I go to the TOC reference page and change (for example) the line for the chapter entries so that the page number has a "bold" character format, the entry is converted to a hyperlink but not the page number itself. So if I have the line <$paranum><$paratext><$pagenum> (this line has the paragraph tag ChapterTitleTOC) and I select "<$pagenum>" and apply a character tag (say "Bold"), then the chapter entries in the TOC look fine, but the page numbers are converted to hyperlinks in the PDF. The *chapter* number and text are hyperlinks but not the *page* number. This also happens if I surround <$pagenum> with a <Bold> tag, for example <$paranum><$paratext><Bold><$pagenum><Default Para Font> This also happens in index entries. Anyone seen this before?
