    hyperlinks changed from http: to file: when placing RTF

    DesertGirl

      I've searched high and low and can't find any discussion of this issue:

       

      When I place an RTF file in an InDesign doc, some (most, actually) hyperlinks are modified from "http://[URL]" to "file://[folder name and path of the placed RTF]".

       

      When I open the RTF in Word 2016, the URLs are as expected and function.

       

      I'm flummoxed, and appreciate any guidance!

       

      thanks,

      Bets
