Hook Link vs Hook File

If I create a Link to a .PDF file it shows up in Hook under Recent. If I then click that entry in Recent, it immediately opens the file in my PDF viewer.

If I then create a Hook File from that Recent item, then when I click on the Hook File, Finder opens to show me the file; I have to then click the file in Finder in order to open it.

Is there a way for the Hook File to skip that extra step and directly open the file in the PDF viewer?

Do you have this middle option checked under the general tab?

Isn’t that the darndest thing when a computer does precisely what you have asked it to do? :slight_smile:

Thank you


Infuriating, isn’t it? :smile:
