Hyperlinks greyed out

Mar 20, 2013 9:08 PM

Hi there, I am trying to create hyperlinks in an Indesign TOC. However the Hyperlink option is greyed out in the options menu. I looked at other discussions and the advice when this happened was always to trash or change the preferences. I looked at that document but the files it mentions to trash are not on my system. I am using a new MAC and version CS5 of Indesign.

    Try this method of restoring your preferences. It doesn't require you to search and delete files:

    The down side of the keyboard method is that if you have a fast computer, it's hard to press the keys fast enough. It's not the repetition, it's getting in the keystrokes fast enough.


    If you can't find the files on a Macintosh, it's probably because in Lion and Mountain Lion, your Home > Library file is by default hidden. In the Finder, if you hold down the Option key when you choose the Go menu, you should be able to see Library as a choice. Then you can probably find the files that Peter Spier refers to in this documentation:
