Hyperlink doesn't work when converted to PDF

Mar 24, 2013 11:49 AM

I have InDesign CS3 (v. 5.0.4) installed on a Dell Latitude E6520 with Win 7 Pro SP 1, 64 bit, i5 processor and 8 GB RAM.


I use InDesign to create a newsletter, and normally I have no problems when I insert a hyperlink into the InDesign document and then Export the InDesign document to a PDF.  Normally, the links work in the PDF.


However, I have encountered a problem with this link: Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-adv.html&r=14&p=1&f=G&l=50&d=PG01&S1=%2820130 321.PD.+AND+Google.AS.%29%mtsegdgt&OS=PD/20130321+AND+AN/Google&RS=%28 PD/20130321+AND+AN/Google


It does not work in the PDF, whether I use the New Hyperlink Destination/New Hyperlink feature, or just use the URL.  I get the same error whether I open the document in Acrobat 8 Pro or Reader XI:


Error #2406

Error: Process terminated abnormally. Document may be truncated.


If I use the Go To Destination feature in InDesign, the links works.


Can anyone tell me what needs to be done to make this link work in the PDF?

    Is that link supposed to go to a single hit? When I copy it into the address field of my browser it takes me to the patent office and dumps me on page 14 of 217 from a search query. Perhaps that's the problem?
