Default Hyperlink not activated by footpedal


Hi there.
My problem is that I have set up a hyperlink to jump from one presentation to another This works great with a mouse click on the hyperlink page. However I do not want to use a mouse! I want to use a foot pedal.

To turn pages on the presentations I have assigned a shortcut key (spacebar) to my footpedal. This works fine but when I reach the Hyperlink page and again press the footpedal I just get a blank page.
I get the same effect when using the Shotcut keys on my keyboard!
Can the hyperlink not work without a mouse click?
Any help around this would be great.

You cannot activate a link with space. The only Key combo that might work is TAB ENTER
