Hyperlink in OTL File "L" Parameter
- HI Group,
The "L" parameter in a hyperlink in an OTL document doesn't work consistently
as expected (by me). I expected the following to jump to the fifth line from
the end of the readme.txt document:
Instead, it jumps to the fifth character of the first line of the readme.txt
document. Even worse, I get this message, "No matching item Hyperlink -2 was
found" when I try to jump to the next-to-last line of readme.txt using the
Both examples that are included in the C:\Program Files\NoteTab Pro\ReadMe.otl
file work as advertised. See partial quote below.
In all cases, both the outline with the hyperlinks and the readme.txt document
are in the same folder, and I have set the "Quick Open Links" option under the

* To jump to a specific line number in a document, the format of the hyperlink
is similar to the search criteria. You use the line number instead of the

display the Readme.txt file with the cursor at the beginning of the 5th line.
If you specify "-1", the cursor will be placed on the last line:

you expected. I can position the cursor at the 132th charachter in the
readme.txt file with this line [readme.txt::-132^L]. This is not documented,
as far as I can see ...
Apparently you can only go to the last line [readme.txt::-1^L] if you use
[readme.txt::-2^L] apparantly is regarded as a piece of text (similar to
[readme.txt::rubbish^L]). Strange since [readme.txt::-0^L] just opens the
document without positioning the cursor anywhere.
