Default Insert Hyperlink - Differing Functionality


I received a word document from a source outside of my office that contained many hyperlinks to PDFs. The Word document was burned directly onto a disk along with a folder containing the PDF's, all without a parent folder on the disk. (Just background info in case it matters...)

This word document defaualted to absolute hyperinks (and thusly the file and folder could not be copied and moved elsewhere without losing functionality of the hyperlinks) when deleting and re-adding the hyperlinks. Beyond that, editing the field code to that of relative hyperlinks resulted in the links not working at all.

Our computers at work somehow both default to new hyperlinks being created as relative hyperlinks, and allow hyperlinks to be edited to change relative to absolute and vice versa.

In the end I just have to build a new document from scratch, but this isn't actually a "real" solution.

Does anyone have any idea how to reset the default settings for creating a new hyperlink and allowing functionality of relative hyperlinks?
