I apologize in advance if this is a FAQ or other known issue; I’ve tried searching for it here in the forums, but I’m not exactly sure how to search for it because it’s an odd sort of issue.
I use Scrivener 2.0.2 on Snow Leopard 10.6.5.
When I create a link with a URL that includes the ‘#’ character, that character gets converted to ‘%23’ when clicking it or when copying and pasting the text that includes the link. On at least some sites, that conversion causes the link to be invalid, and I wind up getting a 404 result.
Example of what I mean:
Let’s say that I create a link using that URL by highlighting some text, and doing Edit->Add Link… . If I later click that link, it attempts to pop the page up in Safari, but the URL it’s using isn’t what’s above. Instead, it’s this:
And with at least some sites, that effectively breaks the link.
Does that make sense? Can it be fixed? Thanks for your help.
