    Link Limit? (XP)

    I am having some problems getting a few hyperlinks to work in PP. All of the ones that don't work are longer than the ones that do work. Is there a limit to the length of a slide title that you can like to? If so, is the only workaround to shorten the title? (They match textbook section titles and I don't want to do that unless there is no other way.)

    Do the links work if you reduce the length of the titles?

    I can get hyperlinks to slide titles of over 600 characters in length to work without problems in PowerPoint 2002 (XP). What is the length of the titles that cause problems for you?

    "12.2 The Least Squares Estimates, and Point Estimation and Prediction" on two lines with a return before the and. Don't know if it matters but it's a large presentation, 130 slides.

    Ronny,

    the hyperlink 'space' does have a limit... see

    Lost hyperlinks, hyperlinks link to wrong place, hyperlinks stop working
    http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00401.htm

    then
    Convert slide titles to shapes to solve hyperlink limit problems

    It's the darn comma! It appears PP does not allow you to have commas in titles you link to. I took out the comma and it works fine.
