I've been trying to create a simple hyperlink in my document about 30 times today, and nothing worked! I did it once correctly, on another document, but lately, nothing. I have to get this done, and I'm following Adobe's documentation, and I can't figure it out.
with the text tool, I select the words in a paragraph I want to link to a url, let's just say I want to create a hyperlink to the words: "I can't do it"
I select them
go into hyperlink under 'type' and get the hyperlink dialog box, and select new hyperlink
In the dialog, I type 'URL' in the Link to --destination box. Type in the new url in the empty name box with the http www. stuff, , click ok, and nothing. No matter if I select URL(or shared destination, it doesn't matter, neither work)
I even try to save it to a PDF file, to see if the link is there, and it isn't. What am I doing wrong? I've tried this with simple text, selecting a graphic, and nothing. I am totally stumped.
The Link isn't active in InDesign.
When you export the PDF ensure that you have the Hyperlinks button checked.
