    'Hyperlink' checkbox is disabled while creating merged document (PDF)

      Hi,

       

      Problem:

      I was trying to add hyperlinks to some text in the Indesign template for creating a merged document (Indesign Data merge feature). But the hyperlinks are not shown/transferred to the pdf files. This problem seems to only with the export to pdf feature in data merge.

       

      Observed:

      I observed that the hyperlink checkbox is disabled on 'Export to PDF' dialog.

       

      Steps I performed:

      Data merge -> Export to PDF -> Include tab -> 'Hyperlink' checkbox is disabled.

      I have tried changing all the presets and created new presets to allow hyperlinks but even when the new preset is selected the 'hyperlink' check box is disabled.

      Can anyone let me know how to enable it.

       

       

      I have attached a screenshot of the dialog box. It would be great if some one can help me out.
