  • Will zoom indexing follow links in a Word document?

    We have been using Zoom for quite a while for indexing our intranet.
    Recently users have started creating index documents in Word, these contain a list of links to other word documents.
    Zoom doesn't seem to be following the links in the index documents, is this the expected behaviour or is there some option I need to use to get Zoom to follow the links?
    The links are absolute http links but to the same site as we are indexing.

    The text content of Word documents are indexed.
    But after extracting the text from a Word document, it is processed as text, not HTML.
    So Word documents are not expected to be used as web site navigation.

    If you make a similar page as HTML it should be fine. Word also has an option to save a file as HTML. So just saving it as HTML would also solve the issue.
