View > Extras >Hide link badge
Is there any way to permanently hide the link icons?
I have gone to View > Extras >Hide link badge
BUT when I quit and restart InDesign, they are showing again.
Try doing it with no files open. This may be a document-specific setting, however, so you'd have to do it for every existing file once.
That seems to be working so far.
You/ve made my day!
I can't thank you enough.
Have a great day.
