Under Adobe Reader clicking on the link brings up a side panel element to convert the file to docx!? In neither case does it work as I would expect, i.e., it brings up the other document.

Everything (Skim, Preview, Adobe Reader) is working fine here with the 2018 compilation, **but** I am on Mojave 10.14.6. So I tried all files with a recent version of Adobe Reader on Windows 10 and the behavior is similar to what you are seeing: at some point it asks for permissions but nothing happens, and the 2018 versions don't work either.
Since I would like to upload files calling each other so anyone can use them (instead of uploading a big file), I would very much appreciate any advice.
All the best,
