Drag and drop link problem?

    Okay, weird one of the day.

    Every time I used a OneNote link to open an InDesign file (CS4) located on
    our network storage, eventually InDesign would crash, particularly if I
    clicked on an image with text wrap. Very disconcerting. So, I deleted all the
    links to InDesign files in my OneNote pages.

    Then, I remembered that all those links had been created by dragging and
    dropping onto a OneNote page. As a test, I recreated the link to one of the
    crashing InDesign files using the Hyperlink command in OneNote -- no drag and
    drop. I then used the link to open the InDesign file, worked on it for quite
    a while without any problems and no crashes, including the image with the
    text wrap. Hmmmmm. . . . could it really make a difference how the hyperlink
    is created?

    Oh YES !

    If the hyperlink is created by using ONs own GUI then only ON
    participates in this action.

    But if you use Drag&Drop two parties are involved in using a special
    Windows communication protocol behind the scenes:
    A drag source (InDesign in your case) and a drop target (ON in your
    case). So InDesign could have a bug ...
