Question about hyperlinks copied and pasted into an ACT field

I am on ACT Premium 2012, version 14.1.108.0, Hot Fix 3 operating on Windows 7.

See if you can follow this..

I use a memo field in ACT. I have a seperate word document with information that I cut and paste into that memo field.

Some of the info in that Word document has hyperlinks associated with certain words.

 

When I cut and paste it into the memo field, those hyperlinks no longer show.

 

Any thoughts on how I can get those hyperlinks to work in a memo field?

 

Thanks!

Re: Question about hyperlinks copied and pasted into an ACT field

Since memos don't support HTML formatting, if you are copying text and links from a website you need to make sure you get the URL in plain text.

 

The best case is that you can see the URL already in plain text when you paste it. An example memo would be:
This is my website: http://mywebsite.com/

 

Worst case is that you are copying from a website and the memo ends up looking like this:
Click Here to go to my website

You will need to go back to the page and right click on the link to copy the URL address, then add it to your note.

 

Hope this helps.
