I create a monthly employee newsletter which has numerous links to pages on our corporate portal. Because some of these pages have spaces in the names, the hyperlinks include "%20" to indicate spaces.
Every time I export the newsletter from InDesign to PDF for distribution, I have to correct all the links because "%20" gets changed to "%2520" during the export.
Is there some setting I need to change to fix this, or am I doomed to fixing this in Acrobat every time I export?
For the record, I have InDesign CS6 version 8.0.1.
@Houseman57 – you could also try one of the scripts in this post:
The second one (an enhanced version by Joe Fugate) is in answer #51.
(As always): If you'll try the scripts, run them on a duplicate of your file in case something will go deeply wrong.
Would be nice if you could report back to me or Joe in any case at the mentioned thread.
If you decide against the script(s), I recommend reading about the possible cause to the problem in answer #1…
Hope, it will help until Adobe comes around with a fix.
Why does it take so long 'til 8.0.2 ? (Just a rhetorical question. In this regard we already had high hopes for 8.0.1)
That thread introduced me to the Hyperlinks panel that I had never seen before, and it enables me to fix the links manually like @Steve Werner suggested. I usually have six or fewer corrupted links each month, so I can fix manually until Adobe releases version 8.0.2.
Thanks for your post!
@HouseMan57 – sorry to hear that it's not working…
Currently I have no time to investigate the issue. Perhaps next week.
But at least for the time being you have a workaround.
Thanks to Steve Werner!!
