I am trying to do internal Hyperlinks. I have 52 slides and all but
4 of them will let me hyperlink to them. I can't figure out why these
4 are any different then the others. Can anyone help me???

Is there a comma in the title of the affected slides?

Good evening Holly,

Look for punctuation in the slide title placeholders of those 4 slides
(specifically commas, if I recall correctly).

The usual solution to this is to move the actual title placeholder off the
slide and place a regular textbox that looks just like the title where the
title was. The delete the commas from the real title placeholder and life
should be good again.

As well as Bill's workaround you might want to try this also.

Delete the comma, make the link > put the comma back. (Be interested to know
if it works for you)
