Hyperlink on Hierarchical Block enabled in pdf

Hi everyone,


we are going to start hierarchical designs in dxdesigner, using pads flow. Today I added a new property to my prp-file, called "BlockDocLink". My intention is to write some kind of documentation (e.g. a word-document) for a new created block and link this documentation to the symbol, so anyone who opens the pdf of the schematic can have a glance at this documentation. In general, this works fine, from within the dxdesigner I can select the block-symbol and follow the link.


My problem is, that I can't get this Link to be exported during pdf-export. I know, I must select File --> Export --> pdf and enter the property containing the Link to the field "URL-Valued Properties:". With another Property (for linking Datasheets) this works fine. For testing, I entered the property "BlockDocLink" alone as "URL-Valued Properties:", with no result, the Property can not be selected in the pdf-viewer.


Has anyone tried to do something like this before?


Kind regards,
