In TeXmacs, I'm trying to insert hyperlinks that link to urls with the command \hlink and then I fill out the appropriate name and the url. But when I try to open the link in TeXmacs it yields the error:

The file cannot be loaded or created

How do I correctly have these hyperlinks open up in my default browser when I click on them?

    Where do you get \hlink from? Could you provide the community with a minimal working example (MWE) that replicates the problem? That way we can give you answers more readily. – Werner Feb 5 '15 at 18:03
  • Are you sure that's the right command? TeXmacs is a "what you see is what you mean" software program. I last tried it nearly ten years ago, but I don't remember ever entering "TeX-like" commands.... @Werner -- I'm not sure you can provide an MWE for TeXmacs files: they are not .tex files (though they can be exported to various formats). – jon Feb 5 '15 at 23:32
  • "TeXmacs allows you to enter LaTeX commands directly from the keyboard as follows. You first hit the \-key in order to enter the hybrid LaTeX/TeXmacs command mode. Next you type the command you wish to execute." It's a shortcut for Insert -> Link -> Hyperlink. – henrywallace Feb 6 '15 at 1:29
  • I can insert symbols in Word with TeX syntax. This doesn't make questions on that process on-topic for this site. – Sean Allred Jun 9 '15 at 5:13
  • Please consider supporting the proposed creation of a TeXmacs SE site here: area51.stackexchange.com where such kind of questions can be discussed. – mgubi Apr 14 '19 at 15:39
