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

After I wrote the earlier post, I went back to the computer to try
various settings in editing the hyperlink and the PDF export, to see if
I would somehow stumble on to the cause, and then consistently recreate it.
But before I did anything, I noticed Microsoft Security Essentials was
scanning the computer. This computer is old and slow, so I closed
Reader and LO.
And went for a two mile hike! LOL
When I came back and read your message, I went get the export
information you requested.
After loading the document, I checked the settings for the hyperlink,
and noticed there were forward slashes in the path, and I would have
thought they should have been backward slashes.
Using cut and paste, I copied the path to the directory window I wanted
to open, and when I clicked apply I discovered LO changes it to forward
slashes. But I said, "What the heck, let's see what happens." I
exported as a PDF with no changes to the settings, opened the PDF in
Reader, and the directory window worked like I wanted.
And when I hovered the mouse over the link, nothing. No popup showing
the path of the link.
I have absolutely no idea where or what the original issue is/was. Just
1. Perhaps the manual editing of the hyperlink accessed some obscure bug.
2. Could it be the scan by MSE somehow caused the problem, maybe not
directly but indirectly. I have no way of knowing when MSE started it's
scan, as I wasn't watching the clock.
3. Was there something found by MSE that was causing the problem? I
don't know, MSE did not put up any report window after it finished it's
scan. Checking the History in MSE disclosed nothing found in today's scan.
I just don't know, but it works!
Maybe it was my "magic fingers"! : grin :
