Hello! I'm a new forum user...I am hoping someone can help me out with an issue I've been having. I can't seem to find much pertinent info in any other forums.

I've created a CD with lots of various documents, and used Acrobat Pro to create a PDF menu of links to all of the contents on the disc. Adobe Reader handles it fine and opens all of the proper documents with no trouble. Preview recognizes the links (mousing over the link causes the link text to appear in a little info box) and it opens PDF documents, but it won't open any other kind of document.

Is this a known limitation of Preview? Is there anyway to create the links so they will be properly used by Preview?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
QUOTE Thanks
