Setting a data frame's coordinate system seems to turn off hyperlinks?

Question asked by jimeoff on Jun 29, 2016

I created some Arcmap (10.4) document hyperlinks using a new field in a layer's attribute table.

Next I specified the data frame's coordinate system (the data came from AutoCAD dwg files that either had no coordinate system or perhaps the coordinate system did not translate during import).

Simply setting the coordinate system seems to disable the hyperlinks. The linked features (points) no longer change color when I activate the Hyperlink tool and no longer respond.

Can anyone clarify what I might need to do or point me to information to help understand what's happening?

If a coordinate system has to be applied before creating hyperlinks, why is this so?

Thank you.
