I'm not using the beta, but in v. 1.9.9, I do find that it is still necessary to insert a / manually into the Link dialogue when linking to a File.
Not if you select No prefix.
If you paste a path (from File Explorer, say), and click "No prefix", you'll get:
Code: Select all
and because it doesn't have "file:///" in front of it, that's not going to work either.
