Hyperlink updates

I would like to see the hyperlinks update automatically when changing the root folder.  For example, current folder is 2013_Folder, new folder becomes 2014_Folder.  Also it would be nice to be able to customize the hyperlink window, as oppose to have a fixed size!

Are you using relative or absolute hyperlinks?
Do you mean root C:\ or parent C:\ My Maps?

Also look at the Map Properties - Summary - Hyperlinks paths are stored as:

If you move a group of maps and files to a new location:
- With relative the links will work
- With absolute the links will have to be edited

Maps with relative hyperlinks moved to a new location at the same level will have working relative links to any file or folder on the drive.  If you move them up or down a level they will have to be edited.

You can bulk edit the hyperlinks in a map using Replace (Binoculars top right) - Look in hyperlinks e.g. Replace \2013\ with \2014\.

In the desktop app you can drag the edge of the browser pane to change the size.

All links are relative and it's not working.  I have yearly folders (root) and all my other folders in that root folder.  When I create a new "root" folder and move some folders from the old root folder to new one I have to refresh hyperlinks.  The links span more than what the window allows, therefore I always have to scroll down to reach the next hyperlink to update.  I have also received msg to automatically update links which I click yes
