in my German InDesign CS6 the "#" in the navto hyperlinks is converted into "%23", resulting in hyperlinks that don't work.
Does anyone have the same problem?
Does Adobe know the problem?
Hoping for a solution
thank you almute.
I even get this behaviour in english CS6.
this behaviour is differnt from CS5.5
but, you should create links with buttons and use the Go To URL action,
there the # stays.
@Almute – Bug confirmed by me.
You might think that you could correct that if you edit the URL in the Hyperlinks panel (in #3 of your screen grabs). If you reopen the hyperlink the URL in the panel will switch to %23. If you choose "cancel" instead of "ok" then the "#" is shown again.
But the point is, that editing the text input field in your screen grab #3 does only edit the name property of the hyperlink, not its destination URL!
//Your open document: var d = app.documents; //The FIRST hyperlink in the document's hyperlink collection: var hl = d.hyperlinks; hl.destination.name = "navto://7-01_Objektive#0"; hl.destination.destinationURL = "navto://7-01_Objektive#0";

Thanks for your tips.
@Johannes: I don't want to work with buttons because my hyperlinks are in the text.
@Uwe: Thanks for your script.
Result: Since some more features in CS6 don't work like expected I now go back to CS5 with my actual project.
This means to abandone the second layout I created for the iPhone :-( and wait, until the hyperlink, the import of alternative layouts and PDF with zoom on iPhone work (see my other discussions I started yesterday).
this bug only appears if you are using text hyperlinks, wich might be
handy, but it is recommended to create buttons instead*. they will keep
text is most likely too small to tap, buttons are less likely to break.
This looks like an InDesign CS6 bug. I believe a workaround is to create the hyperlink directly in the panel instead of bringing up the new hyperlink dialog. I haven't tested it yet (I'm listening to Bob Levine's presentation.)
