New Product Lets Word Users Move or Rename Linked Files Without Creating Broken Links.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA — Microsoft Word users who take advantage of its ability to link to external files face a special problem: what to do when they want to move or rename linked files. As soon as they move or rename linked files (or the folder they reside in), they create broken links.

If moving or renaming a file or folders causes only a few broken links, the problem is not severe. The user can manually open each Word file and manually edit the name of the file stored in each link. What if moving or renaming files or folders would causedozens or hundreds of broken links?

This is the problem that LinkTek Corporation’s new patent-pending product, LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Word, solves. Using LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Word a Word user can easily move or rename hundreds of Word documents and the files linked to them, in batch and have all of the links maintained totally automatically!

LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Word gives Word users the ability to:

  • Rename or move linked files, in batch, using sophisticated rename rules,without causing broken links in the Word files that point to them.
  • Safeguard healthy links in Word files, allowing them to be automatically fixed when they become broken.
  • Fix broken links in safeguarded Word files totally automatically.
  • Generate a report listing all Word files containing broken links, so they can be fixed before causing problems.
  • Generate a regular report listing each Word file followed by a list of the files it links to.
  • Generate a cross-reference report listing each linked file followed by a list of all the Word files that point to it.
  • Report whether a file is being pointed to by any Word file anywhere on a user’s system, thereby letting the user know whether the file is safe to delete.
  • Perform sophisticated global search and replace operations on filenames embedded in links in hundreds of Word files with a single command.
