Problem with hyperlinks when downloading Word or Excel documents

Recently we stumbled upon strange issue with office documents. When we edit online documents, hyperlinks show exactly like they should. But if we download document or choose edit offline option hyperlinks get "relative" paths.
For example:
Link like: https://ecm/share/page/site/12076/document-details?nodeRef=workspace://SpacesStore/cd9f1e97-ec8b-4521-aaff-a9d02642c66a
Would look like: ..\..\..\..\..\..\share\page\site\12076\document-details?nodeRef=workspace:\\SpacesStore\cd9f1e97-ec8b-4521-aaff-a9d02642c66a

Does anyone know what could cause this issue? Is it AOS related or Office related?

Re: Problem with hyperlinks when downloading Word or Excel documents

When you click the cell that contains the HYPERLINK function, Excel opens the file that is stored at the location of the link. Syntax. HYPERLINK(link_location,friendly_name). Link_location is the path and file name to the document to be opened as text. ... To create a hyperlink to a specific location in a Microsoft Word document, you must use a bookmark to define the location you want to jump to in the document or https://plagiarismfreeessay.com , it helped me when I had such problem. The following example creates a hyperlink to the bookmark named QrtlyProfits in the document named Annual Report.doc located at example.microsoft.com: =HYPERLINK('the annual microsoft link here' Report.doc]QrtlyProfits", "Quarterly Profit Report").
