[oXygen-user] Questions about links

1. I have the following <p> tag with a linked PDF:
Please open the following document:
<xref href="https://fileserver.com/documents/BXMLGuide.pdf">The Beginner's
Guide to All Things XML</xref>.

(The URI for this is different in the actual document).

I can use this very same URI and open this document. This link works in
other documents. But when I transform this DITA content using the Legacy PDF
transform, the link, while underlined in blue and apparently "clickable,"
does not actually open the document.

2. I have the following tag for an entry later in the document:

See <xref  href="C_setup_my_account.dita#setupmyaccount">Set Up Your
                Account</xref> for more information

I can open this link within Oxygen - it opens the 'peer' file just fine.
It's part of the same DITAMAP and when I transform to PDF, this topic is
part of the PDF. But the link, while Blue Italic, is not clickable.

3. I remember (I think) that when I transformed to PDF using the Legacy OT
transform that it also put the page number as part of the link for a link
within the same document. Is this still possible?
