    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:

       

      http://law.ato.gov.au/atolaw/view.htm?docid=AID/AID2004688/00001

       

      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:

       

      http://law.ato.gov.au/atolaw/view.htm%3Fdocid%3DAID/AID2004688/00001

       

      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.
