I am working on an interactive pdf in inDesign which includes links which when clicked dial phone numbers.
I The Hyperlink settings i am using are
Link to URL
Destination URL =
tel:+61 and then the mobile number minus the first digit.
The client has taken a while to get back to me and the results seem different from the first time I did this - as in the results are inconsistent - some work fine others do nothing.
I've checked and re-checked I am using the exact same Destination code, and have even deleted the link and re-set it but it just seems inconsistent.
I am testing on an iPhone running 7.1.2 (11D257)
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks Steve - this problem seems different depending on which reader the end users has set up on their iPhone - the best option is opening straight out of mail which I presume is using "apple preview".
adobe reader is very inconsistent. iBooks better but Preview seems the best.
If the end user leaves their finger too long a pop up appears asking which reader they want to use.
SO I guess educating my client to just tap the number is the best option.
ios 8.0.2 seems more stable so I will also get them to update to this.
