    Yes, I was creating the hyperlink in the comment section of the particular resource.
    I do think giving the user a choice to 'always' use the Windows sytem of file association would be a better option instead of a right click every time choice.

    I'm finding DP an interesting journey, it certainly follows it's own path and is not afraid to not follow the generic route.
    It's complexity is surprising and it's ways of implementation are in many ways refreshing.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for the reply. I still insist that on my system DP is not opening .midi as it should. The file type association in Windows is correct.
    If I open the file in Win Explorer it plays as it should in Windows Media Player. If I link to the .midi file in RightNote (the current PIM I use) it opens as it should in WMP. But if I link to the .midi file in DP and click on it it asks me to save the file. Please try it yourself with a .midi file. I am using the current version of DP by the way.

    Hi - If this has been answered before or is an option I've missed I apologise but I've taken a gander through the previous questions and through the pdf but not seen the answers.

    Is it possible to define what software you would want to open specific files? I'm looking for DP to store my music files, some are .wav and some .midi and some specific to the audio software I use. I can't seem to find an option that let's me define what opens what, or just a generic 'what would you like to open this with?' question box. If I click on a .midi hyperlink DP asks me where I want to save it??? I don't want to save it I'd like to open it. If I hyperlink to an external .wav file DP opens it in it's own player. (there is a bug here also I think, if I click on the .wav file a new tab opens and the .wav file plays inside DP, if I close the tab the file keeps on playing, I have to exit DP to close the music)
    The main issue though is I would like to configure my own file options. I'm a beginner in this world of DP so if it's already an option please point it out.

    And a few other questions regarding the spreadsheet in DP. Is there a way to link to a specific cell within another page in the workbook? Can you insert hyperlinks from a cell to an external file? is there a way to insert an image in a cell?

    Thank you.

    Voltaire started the conversation PDF Page Bookmarks.

    When viewing a .pdf inside doogiePIM and right clicking, if you select 'Bookmark this Page' all I seem to be able to do is create a bookmark for the pdf. Should this create a bookmark for the actual page or am I missing something. I can add the page number myself using the parameter '#page = pagenum' to the end of the file name, but could or should doogiePIM do this?

    Thanks.

    Voltaire posted in Document Hyperlinks.

    It's all types of links, https type links, internal links such as; texnotes://id.190, and local file links. The links already in the document don't show in the tools area. I've tried changing documents and creating new ones and also changing the colour of the links incase I had grey on grey or something daft.

    Version 2.1.1.8 of dP and WIN10 by the way.

    Hi,
    When I have hyperlinks in a document they don't show up in the right hand side tools area. I've tried the 'Refresh Hyperlinks' button and still the same. The hyperlinks work great inside the document but clicking on the 'Hyperlinks' tab of the tools window I don't see them.

    Also if I switch on 'Auto mark any URLs and Email addreses' in the 'Document Editors' of 'Settings and Preserences' URLs aren't recognized automatically.

    You're right, there's no way you should step outside the law. For the little I looked at it, H.264 licencing seems costly and confusing. This is not a big problem at all and should as you say in due course be resolved.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Voltaire started the conversation Internal Browser Video Resolutions.

    Noticed that when playing certain YouTube videos the built in browser will only display them in 360p. They will play at higher resolutions in Chrome. YouTube has a page about the problem and says "some browsers do not support newer video formats or quality options. This means these browsers may only have one or two video formats to choose from."

    Is this a restriction of the built in browser? Is there any fix or update possible in the future? I could of course set the URL to play in the external browser but this internal one is very handy to have and use.
    Thanks.

    Voltaire posted in Unable to add a Calendar event.

    Yes you're absolutely correct. Apologies over taking up your time. I was a bit daft there.

    Will now take some time to properly read through the help screens.

    Voltaire started the conversation Unable to add a Calendar event.

    I can't add a Calendar event. It seems although I have a number of items in the Resources section when I try to add a calendar event the Resources drop down is unpopulated it just displays 'Cancel'.
    I've also tried right clicking on the calendar and selecting 'Add a new Resource', then added a resource but this resource still does not show in the event dropdown, (but it does show in the Resources section). I then tried deleting all my resources and just leaving a default one and this still didn't show in the Calendar event resources drop down.

    The strange thing is when I first purchased the program I could add calendar events and the 'Default' resource showed in the event dropdown. These old Calendar events when I double click on them show no resource against them and DP complains 'You must choose a Calendar Resource.....'

    I haven't changed the 'Resources Folders Naming Format' and can't find any forum topics on this problem.
    Sorry if I seem to be continually coming up with problems but I'd really like to use this PIM in my research work but it has to be pretty bullet proof.

    Edit: If I create a new database then the resources do show correctly in the Calendar event dropdown, so somehow in the previous database the interplay between Calendar events and Resources has become disconnected. Is there any idea what went wrong? Is there a way to fix it? I tend sometimes just to shutdown Windows without shutting down DP, could this have caused it? I've tried the 'Repair Database...' and 'Compact Database...' options but still the same.
