I'm working in InDesign CS6 on a new Mac Powerbook.
I created hyperlinks in an InDesign CS3 document (last year) which I brought into CS6 today.
My hyperlinks do not apear in the control panel (as a list), but I see the highlighted links in the document and they are active when I save to pdf.
I'm including one additional comment - even though I marked the hyperlinks with invisible boxes, I'm still seeing outlines around the links.
I'm hoping once I have the panel with the list of links I can adjust the look on the page, too.
Is there a way to set the control panel back to a default setting?
I just tested with InDesign CS3, created a few hyperlinks, opened the file in CS6 and all the hyperlinks are still there. No problem.
How did you open the CS3 file? Did you use the INX export format for exchange?
Can you provide a sample document for downloading?
I opened the CS3 file with no problems in CS6. I did not use a file exchange format.
It's not the hyperlinks in the document which are the problem - they are still there.
The hyperlinks are not listed in the hyperlink palette window - as they were in CS3 - as image links are shown in the link window. See image below.
Ok. I just solved my own problem. I was reading about other problems and someone mentioned trashing the InDesign preferences file. So I did. I'll come back if I lose my hyperlinks list again.
"There is a quick and easy method for doing this using the keyboard: close and relaunch InDesign, and IMMEDIATELY hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac), and respond in the affirmative to the dialog asking if you really want to replace the preferences." per Peter Spier
Have a great day everyone.
I have the same problem. Tried resetting my preferences but it hasnt helped.
Seems like my workspace profile was corrupt. I changed from my personalised profile to "Interactive for PDF" ( which has the Hyperlinks panel) and it worked. All the Hyperlinks and cross-references show.
Now i am going to rebuild and save my profile
I had the same issue with my Hyperlinks palette -- very frustrating -- but the solution does not require trashing (and laboriously rebuilding) your profile.
Open the drop-down menu on the Hyperlinks palette (as you would to "Edit Hyperlink") and click "Small Panel Rows" at the very bottom. The Hyperlinks section should reappear.
It took me 2 hours and 3 times rebuilding my profile before I tried that out of desperation
Now I'd like to know exactly how to get rid of the "Cross-References" section of that palette.
