    Hi Johan, welcome to the forums ๐Ÿ’ช! Do the links you're inserting always start the same? For example, with "m-files"?

    Hi Stephanie,

    for now that's the only use case we have (and we would want to do it a lot). However, I could imagine other users/customers could have similar needs with other types of links.

    It seems to me that "programming-wise" it could be a fairly easy fix. Either to introduce an option for non-standard hyperlinks (in addition to the link-button you currently have) or to have a checkbox in the hyperlink dialog to deactivate the insertion of "http://" and allow the user to insert a customized link.

    ย 

    Cheers

    ย 

    Johan

    Hi Stephanie,

    I would like to second this request; often, a separate document management system is in place that operates using a separate launch signal for browsers. Worldox, for instance, usesย wdox://?123456 (the id of the document).ย 

    Every time I try to use the hyperlinking, it keeps jamming an http:// in front of it and I can't seem to find a way around it.ย 

    Thanks for any help you can provide on this.ย 

    -Riley

    We would like to have an option to utilize our own internal link that houses documents, similar to Johan's example.ย  Our internal link doesn't use the http prefix either.

    Thanks

    Todd

    I would like to request the same thing. In my case (windows server back-end) our normal practice is to insert hyperlinks in correspondence to direct users to files located on our shared system. In our case this is \\servername\files\specific file, for example. Most users in the windows environment use the insert hyperlink feature that lets you paste in a specific path as I outlined or a web hyperlink.ย 

    ย 

    Having this ability would be great.
