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.
Thanks for replying so quickly Steve. I did try that multiple times and just tried again and it doesn't work for me. I have all my fingers on the buttons ready and I tried holding them down for a long time, quickly and over and over as soon as the program quit. Any other ideas?
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:
Thanks Steve. That worked. I managed to delete the file. The only problem is that it didn't solve the original problems so I guess it was not the reason for my trouble. I still cannot create any hyperlinks in the TOC and that is the main place I need to put them in order to create the interactive pdf.
