I want to find out if InDesign can recognise a URL from a PDF which I have pulled into a picture box?
We are using InDesign and DPS to create magazine apps from PDF pages, a lot of these pages have a lot of URL's which we need live in the app. At the moment we create a hyperlink box, open the pdf from the links window and cut and paste each URL into each hyperlink box.
Is this the only way or are we missing something??
No, it can't as a PDF is handled like any other image.
Is there any sort of workaround?
I was thinking, is there a way to pull the URL's from the pdf's (before importing into InDesign) and then adding them into some sort of list in InDesign, then use the Hyperlinks panel to select the correct URL for the correct Hyperlink box??
If the PDF was created from InDesign, place the InDesign content instead of the PDF. No other workaround known.
