Impress Interaction - Go To Folder?

Is it possible (or could the feature be added in a future release) to go to a folder on clicking an object in Impress? The reason is that I have my family tree created in PowerPoint, with each person in the tree represented by a box with their name in it. On clicking the box, PowerPoint opens a folder of files relating to that particular person. I would like to be able to do the same in LibreOffice Impress, but at the moment the nearest I can get to it is to get Impress to open just a single file on clicking the object. Many thanks in advance for any help on this one. Best wishes, Geoff_B

You can use an interaction Go to document and browse to select a file, then remove the file name and keep only the directory. For ex. on windows :

You can also insert an hyperlink...

Thanks Pierre-Yves, that's great. As a matter of interest, how do you insert a hyperlink, as I can't see that as an option on the "interaction" menu? Regards, Geoff_B

My fault, I wasn't precise enough: I meant that you can do the same thing when inserting a hyperlink. So no interaction here, just click on the link (text or button form)

Thanks Pierre-Yves. I've only just started using LibreOffice, having used MS Office for many years, so am taking a bit of time to get used to the differences! Shame I can't find a way of importing a PowerPoint slide into Impress, and retaining all the hyperlinks.. Still, it seems a good product. Regards, Geoff_B
