I just wanted to share that we had found this same problem with another resource, Films on Demand, in that it was not able to directly link to videos from either Word or PowerPoint. The problem was reported to Films on Demand and fixed by programmers on their end. You may want to report to DawsonEra and see if they can fix the problem.

Good luck!

Hi Andrew - 

thanks for your suggestion.  Unfortunately, I've tried doing that (pasting into notepad and then into Word)  and it doesn't work for us. The links do seem to work OK in our VLE though.

Another thing I've  tried is changing the settings in Word for web linking so links aren't updated on save (this means they are absolute rather than relative, I think) - but this didn't work either!

I did wonder if it was related to authentication in any way - we use Athens to authenticate, so I don't know if the problem exists with other authentication methods?

Thanks for the replies so far,

Sarah

We have a similar Dawsonera linking issue on our VLE recently and found it is good practice to paste links into notepad/textpad first to remote any surreptitious coding that Word or other medium might add.

Not sure about then pasting back to Word but you could experiment!

Regards,

Andrew

Yes, we have experienced this with Dawsonera deep-links.  Couldn't get to the bottom of the problem though so would be very interested in a solution if one is out there.

Subject: [lis-e-resources] Ebook linking problems in Word

Hello,

We're having problems with links to some of our ebooks in Word documents.  Title or chapter level URL links for DawsonEra will work fine if pasted directly into the browser address bar or from a pdf or an email, but in a Word document they go to the DawsonEra home page rather than the specific resource.  The problem seems to have started when we upgraded to Windows 7 and Word 2010.

Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Can you suggest a solution?

Thanks!

Sarah
