WF Classic: placeables hyperlinked not recognized, right?

Hello all,

I did not find anything after a search in the manual and online regarding hyperlinked placeables in WF. The pandora box does not seem to offer any option for those.

My WF (classic) doesn't recognize hyperlinked strings (not the URL they are linked to) that are part of a glossary. In other words, on my machine (Vista SP2), WF does not treat the "Text to display" parameter of the hyperlink field correctly.

Is there a way to adjust WF so that it will process placeables that are used in the "Text to display" for hyperlinked text?

If I understood your question, I don't think there is any setting in PB or elsewhere to handle this issue. You have to copy the hyperlink into the target text, then right click and change the text to display manually. I have not found a better way to do this...
