I would like help with the above subject.  This is an action in the
transaction menu which seems to have no description of what it does or how
to use it.  I tried to use it and it produced a letter in the top bar of
the transaction display.  Now when I right-click on the transaction there
is an action Open Associated File/Location.

When I try that, I get an error message "GnuCash could not open the
associated Url:" then it shows a URL that should be pointing to a file or a
location.  However, there is no information on how to fix the problem.  It
seems like the solution might depend on the OS and certain characteristics
of the URL.  I would like a general answer for Windows, Linux, MAC, and
local vs network locations and, perhaps, relative vs absolute addressing if
that matters.
