View Full Version : I've lost my "Insert Hyperlink" dialog box, help!

05-18-2011, 02:08 AM
Until yesterday, if I selected some text (in code or design view) and then selected Insert > Hyperlink, a dialog box would come up. Today, the text I selected just gets converted to a "#", and no dialog box. I have to use the Properties Inspector instead.
Same if I try to use Insert > Named anchor.
What could have caused this? I'm using CS5.

Can't figure out why, unless you were in there playing around, but sounds like your preferences have been changed. Up top, click on EDIT, then down at the bottom find "preferences", then choose the "General" category. In there you see two sections; under the second one "editing options" , the first checkbox is 'show dialog when inserting objects'. Make sure it's checked, my guess is right now it's not, & if so, problem solved...

Thank you so much - solved!
I certainly did not change that preference, so I'm mystified about why it happened.

Can you make sure the 'gravelings', whatever they are, are blocked through the .htaccess file?
