    Question opening local files (pdf)

    I was able to open pdf files (local files) with version 4.2. But the same code doesn't work with version 5.0. <a href="annexes/plans.pdf">
    I know that it's a security issue. But I tried to enable the option (tools - options- general) "Allow placemarks balloons to access local files and personal data" but it still doesn't work.
    Can I adapt the code to make it work ?
    Thanks for your help

    I think this is a bug. I reported it several months ago, but they never fixed it so maybe it's actually a "feature". As far as I can tell, the only way around it is to put the file in the same folder as the kml file. ie....change to href="plans.pdf".

    You might also try formatting this way: <a href='annexes/plans.pdf'>

    Thank you very much,
    I tried to put the file in the same folder as the kml and it works.

    Thanks again for your help.
