Inserting file links

A file link is a link to an executable file (e.g. notepad.exe) or to a data file associated with an application  (e.g. DOC word processing files or PDF files). Clicking on the link in the help is just like double-clicking on an executable or DOC or PDF file on your desktop or in Windows Explorer. It either starts the executable file or opens the DOC, PDF or other file with the associated application.

File links are not supported in all output formats! See the compatibility list below for details.
