I have a student using Accordance 12 on a PC who tried to link to a local file from her User Tool and got the following message when she tried to update the tool:

 

"A URL hyperlink may not contain any blank characters."

She tried linking to a PDF, then to a Word doc, both on her C drive, but got the same message. The user tool would not update as a result.

 

Any help appreciated.

Have you tried replacing any spaces in the link with this expression "%20" (no quotes)?

Here is the reply from my student:

 

"Dr. P, 

 
I did that. The link identifies the file, but doesn't open the file. (I did close out of everything before doing that) 
 
B"
