I've created a Writer document that contains a hyperlink to a directory
on the hard drive. I want the hyperlink to open the directory when you
click on it.

When the hyperlink in the .odt file is clicked on from within Writer,
the directory window opens as I wish.

In Reader, when I click on the link, I get a message that Reader either
doesn't allow the file to be accessed or it can't find the file. That
seems to be dependent on the format of the link in LO.

My first attempt at this caused Firefox to open an FTP directory listing
showing the files. That, at the core, is what I want, but I want the
listing in a folder window on the desktop.

At this point, when I hover the cursor over the hyperlink in Reader, the
link shows "D|" instead of "D:" that I would expect.

What am I missing? Is this an LO issue with PDF export, or an Adobe
Reader issue?


What setting are you using for the export? How exactly are you exporting to PDF?
