I have a very urgent question.
I made my dad buy a MacBook Air just 3 days ago, I configured it completely and installed Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac, so far so good.
There is only one bad downside: Every Word document (.doc) which has hyperlinks with custom schemes (i.e: test://, whatever://) gets converted automatically to some weird file pointer scheme stuff. For example:
Example 01: "testing://onetwothree/" -> "file://localhost/testing/::onetwothree::"
Example 02: "one://two/" -> "file://localhost/one/::two::"
However, using "http://", "mailto://", "file://" works with whatever you put after them.
Typically, I'm looking for one simple solution: tell the Word not to validate the hyperlinks present on the document, whether the document is opened, saved, a hyperlink is created or edited, so they will not end up being converted/changed.
PS: This behavior is not present on Windows Office (any version), only on Mac Office 2011.
I have heard that Word Macros CAN overwrite the behavior for built-in function callbacks, something like VBA Scripts (correct me if I'm wrong).
