Creating a hyperlink when the text is in a different language

Post by frvictor2005 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:58 pm

Hi everyone,
I hope someone could help me out. I have a multilingual website. I tried to create a hyperlink on a text in another language. When I go to preview the page the link is not clickable. I just recently upgraded to version 15. In version 14 I did not have this problem. Any thoughts? Thank you.

Nothing has changed in the way you make text a hyperlink. Perhaps you have placed a object over the text making it un clickable.

Thank you for your reply. I thought about that and I made sure that it was behind no object but the link still does not work. When I do the same exact thing on a text that is in English everything works just fine. I'm not sure if its a font issue. I downloaded all the font packs for windows 10 and still the same problem. Very strange.

I first inserted a text box. In the text box I chose Sylfaen font. I then changed my keyboard layout to a foreign language (Ukrainian). Then I wrote a word in the foreign language in the text box. After this I highlighted the text and right clicked on my mouse and chose the option "Link". In the link box I chose to link the text to a page within the website. I also had a custom style under the "Appearance category". I chose the custom design and pressed "ok". I then went to preview the website. When the website was in preview mode I scrolled over the text which I linked but the scroll-over with the mouse showed that there was no created link. In other words the pointer of the mouse did not change to a little hand. I then tried multiple fonts including "web safe" fonts but nothing changed. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

I'm sorry, but I need more information
What is the exact text you have typed?
What are the output settings of the text object?

Do you have an example project?

The exact text was: Вхід. Was in sylfaen, 14pt size. So if you highlight "Вхід" and try to link it to a page in the project does not work. But if I change the text to English "Enter" the hyperlink option works perfectly.

I think you will need to change the output format in the text properties.
Make sure it's set the same as in WB14.
