I was always using drag-n-drop to put links (paths) to the files in OneNote document.

Now I lost this ability: if dragged, files are copied onto page in entire volume.

Why the feature has dispappeared and how to restore it?

PROOF

This is a screenshot after dragging PDF file onto a page

enter image description here

As you see, there is no option to insert a link.

If I drag DJVU file, I has no prompt at all and have the file embedded into the page.

UPDATE

OneNote version is 14.0.7116.5000 (64 bit) from MS Office 2010.

Previously with the same version of OneNote I was able to obtain the following dialog

enter image description here

As you see, it had 3 options with one option "Insert a link to original file" which now gone.

    Does the link insert correctly and work, if inserted via Insert->Link? Also, are the two files (pdf vs DJVU) located in the same place (on-disk, network, internet) – Madball73 May 15 '14 at 15:47
  • What version of OneNote are you using? – joeeey May 19 '14 at 19:45
  • @Madball73 yes inserting links this way works fine – Dims Jun 9 '14 at 16:47
