[WIN-3.0.1] Cannot set a hyperlink to a document within comments

If I right click in the notes section of a document, I can add a link to a document.

unfortunately, I can’t do the same in a comment.

Disclaimer: comments DO support document links (I’ve tried via manual editing of the content.comments file).

Is this a design oversight, or an actual bug?


The design has never fully supported document links in the comments & footnotes fields. I’m not precisely sure why, but it is a very deliberate decision as all methods of making links in the UI are disabled. I.e. hacking them into the RTF field in the .comments file may have unintended side-effects.

The recommended approach is to use inline footnotes and annotations for those that need links within them.
