Bad hyperlinks in Word

Postby jjw on Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:25 pm

I have some links to external Word documents that are rendered inside my Word output from Flare. I've noticed that 2017 R3 is not rendering these links correctly.

For example, a hyperlink created in Flare that looks like this:
file:///C:/FlareFiles/Hardware/Content/Appendices/FG/FG-IN-10_Appendix1_ITP.docx
is rendered in Word like this:
file:///C:/FlareFiles/Content/Appendices/FG/FG-IN-10_Appendix1_ITP.docx
with the "Hardware" folder omitted.

A link that looks like this in Flare:
file:///C:/FlareFiles/FG-IN-10_Appendix1_ITP.docx
Becomes:
file:///C:/FG-IN-10_Appendix1_ITP.docx
with the "FlareFiles folder omitted.

Of course, these links don't work (I know I can fix them manually but I shouldn't have to). I've used external links here to illustrate the problem. Normally I link to files within my project so the links in Flare are relative, but they render the same way when they're published - with the same problem.

So I'm wondering if this is a bug, or if there's some publishing setting that I haven't noticed.
