I have an ipad air. It opens docx files but I am unable to open the links in the file. I am on 8.1.3. The links are blue but when i click on them nothing happens. Any advice?

Try holding your finger on the links to see of you get a pop up menu of options that allow opening in safari or whatever. Just a thought.

No. It just gives the option to copy or define.

Whenever my wife asks me what to do about a problem like his, I tell her to reboot. That most always fixes whatever problem she has.
Hold down the home button and the sleep wake button at the same time for like 10 or 15 seconds.. until you see the white apple appear then release your fingers.
I have several word files that have links embedded as you do and the links work fine for me.
