Hopefully someone can help me out here.

I've got a RoboHelp project that I've been working on for the last few
months without any serious issues.

Doing some QA work on some new topics that I added last week and I found
some broken hyperlinks to bookmarks within the topic. Easy enough to fix I
think so I simply go to recreate the hyperlinks.

However now when I create a hyperlink I get a warning message about external
links and when I look at the html of the link it's an absolute link to the
file on the local drive instead of being a relative link within the project
as it's always been since day 1.

Any advice out there? Have I somehow set an option without being aware of
