Hyperlinks Issue in NLT Bible (ebook or software issue)?

Hello,

I have the NLT Bible (Kobo epub) that I downloaded from the Kobo
store. In some chapters hyperlinks work and in some they don't. I
will give you two examples but it happens throughout the bible:

1 - Go to Table of Contents and select "Genesis" , at the top of the
page are hyperlink numbers 1 thru 50. Press any of these numbers and
the link takes you to the correct page and verse.
2 - Go to Table of Contents and select "Ephesians", at the top of the
page are hyperlink numbers 1 thru 6. Press any of these numbers and
the link "Blinks" (dark then light) and then does nothing. It does
not take you to the correct page or verse and leaves you on the first
page.

It happens in many other chapters as well. Is this a defect in the
ebook or the software? Anyone else having this problem within the same book where some hyperlinks work and others don't?

Tony,

Have you tried reading this epub online, in your library on the Kobo store? If there are bad links in the file it would behave this way.

Hyperlink functionality has not been added to the PC Desktop Application. To check to see whether hyperlinks are working you could load the EPUB into Adobe Digital Editions and try it there.

I hate to sound uninformed but how do I download the NLT Bible to Adobe Digital Editions (ADE)? I have ADE on my computer but where or how do I get the NLT Bible into it?

Go to your Account>Purchase History in your Desktop Application and click the ADOBE DRM EPUB button beside the book you want to download. This will download a file called URLLink.acsm to your computer. Double click that file and it will download the EPUB, open ADE and load it into ADE.

Excellent Instructions! Well I downloaded the NLT Bible to ADE and the links work. Evidently the Kobo Touch has a bug in it. By the way I am using the latest version that just got released 1.9.8
