Richard, Try leaving out the double quotation marks ("). You don't need them in this type of marker.
Also, to be on the safe side, I would replace the spaces in the intended subject line with: %20 This is because some email clients still have trouble with programmed spaces. HTH, Chuck -----Original Message----- Subject: mailto: what am I doing wrong? Microsoft Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4. FrameMaker 6.0p405. Acrobat Professional 7.0.8 I'm trying to create a mailto: link in FrameMaker that will be active in the PDF. I chose Special >> Hypertext.. In the Hypertext dialog, I selected Go To URL. In the Syntax area I typed: message URL "mailto:Thin.Film at inficon.com?subject=Thin Film Help" Then I PDF the document. When I click on the link in the PDF, my Lotus Notes opens, but the To: field is Film at inficon.com (it should be Thin.Film at inficon.com). There is nothing in the Subject: field (there should be Thin Film Help). And my Internet Explorer browser opens, too, with a Action Cancelled error screen (and mailto:Film at inficon.com is in the address field). I do not want the browser to open. What am I doing wrong?
