The only reason the hyperlinks would work is because Acrobat automatically reads them.
Okay. Thanks! So 2 follow up questions then --
- Any way to make Acrobat properly read links that fall onto 2 lines?
- Any idea why this would happen: We export one (with the option in Acrobat turned on!) and the hyperlinks export as expected. We don't close anything, and the next one we export, the hyperlinks do NOT become hot. :-/
Actually, Bob doesn't have it quite right.
Acrobat (and Reader) preferences are set by default to detect links. Preferences > General > Create Links from URLs.
This doesn't mean they would work in a different PDF reader, or of the Acrobat/Reader user had disabled that default.
Acrobat cannot read links which break onto 2 lines, as far as I know.
The point is that any hyperlinks that were working are only a result of Acrobat figuring it out, not because they were in the placed InDesign file.
Sorry if that wasn’t clear.
Thank you guys for your help!
