Simple text links on touchscreen

Post by lveerde » Fri Jul 21, 2017 8:40 am

The simple text links (in a text field) seem to not work on touchscreen devices :(

For example if you create a simple textt field and insert something like:

Code: Select all

Some text for testing<a href="https://ggnome.com/" target="_blank">To the Pano2vr website</a>.
Then this link works with mouse, but do not work on touchscreen. The link turns to red, showing it is touched, but the website does not open.
Is there a way to overcome this? I have text links in hotspots, so action-based link is not a good option...

Hi,
On touch screen devices you have to press and hold, then it works.
Not very intuitive but this is down to the OS of the device.
You are better off putting a transparent rectangle over the text with a mouse click, goto url action.

Regards,
