Hi Adobeians, I am experiencing an issue with Indesign/Acrobat where almost all of my PDF exports have this encrypted link that I cannot get rid of. I have tried re-typing the text, and in most cases it works and in other cases it does not. I have checked the links panel and the it shows there are no links in the file.
It wouldn't matter so much but since these brochures are being hosted to our company page, if a customer clicks on the link it opens up their mail program (which is weird because this occurs on any/all of the text.)
I attached what it looks like when I hover over text with this mystery link encryption. Please help! Thanks everyone.
Found the solution myself. It's a default setting in the newer versions of Acrobat which searches for text which looks like web addresses. To turn this setting off, go to Preferences > General > and uncheck "Create Links from URLs."
Here is the source where I found the solution: http://indesignsecrets.com/why-are-my-hyperlinks-still-working.php
It is a User preference and there is no way you can force any other user to set it your way.
