Is it possible to copy and paste html links from a browser, or MS Word, into a Rev app?

Hi Jacqueline,

I tested this.

It is not retaining the link information, either from MS Word or from IE 8.

This is true both with RunRev 4.0 and RunRev 2.6.1 - those are the only
versions I have to test with.

Take care,
