    Why are Characters in URL Breaking in InDesign CS6?

    robbyberman Community Member

      Hi,

      When I create a URL link in a CS6 InDesign document, InDesign is immediately discarding the "?," "=," and " &"characters and rereformatting them incorrectly, breaking the link. This is new behavior to me. How do I fix this, or is this a bug?

      For the record, it's turning the:

      ? into %3F

      = into %3D

      & into %26

      Are any of these incorrect?

      Thanks.

       

      Upon further research, I see that InDesign is encoding these characters unneccessarily, since they only need to be encoded when they're not being used in URL syntax, which they are here. I'm thinking this is a bug, but I'm curious why no one else is having this issue.

      Help?
