    URL change after pasting

    gwhPoster Level 1

      Hi everyone,


      I'm not sure if I should be posting this question here or in the regular Indesign forum but I'll try here first.


      I created a new URL hyperlink and pasted the following link into the field:




      But when I click OK and then look in the URL field in the hyperlinks panel, I see that Indesign has changed the link to the following:




      Notice how it's swapping out the question mark (?) after .htm with %3F.


      It's also swapping out the equals sign (=) with %3D.


      This breaks the URL and makes it no longer workable.


      I wondered if anyone knows why this is happening and whether there's a workaround?


      Appreciate any help.
