    Hyperlinks created in CS6 introduce extra characters


      I've noticed that when I create hyperlinks in InDesign CS6 (v 8.0.1) it adds extra characters in the URL, thus breaking the link. For example [red highlights problem areas]...


      Correct hyperlink typed into InDesign:



      InDesign renders the URL this way:



      This happens on both a Mac and a pc. I never experienced this problem in earlier versions of InDesign.

      I found an earlier discussion about this problem but it doesn't appear that Adobe has fixed it. A corrective script was offered by Laubender in that discussion. However, I create a lot of docs with a lot of links and would rather avoid that type of solution.


      Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
