    Bug, behaviour or feature: Preflight not detecting inaccessible URL links

    Colin Flashman Adobe Community Professional

      Working on a Mac OSX 10.11.6 (15G31) using InDesign


      I've made a preflight profile to detect inaccessible URL links using the preflight panel. I've typed in a URL that generates a "server not found" error in any internet browser, and used "new hyperlink from URL" to create a hyperlink in InDesign. In the hyperlinks panel of Adobe InDesign, the hyperlinks panel shows the link as red... so far so good. Why then does InDesign's preflight panel not report this as an error?


      Here is a screenshot of what I've done:

      Is that what this portion of the preflight is meant to do, or is it meant to report something else? Can anyone replicate this fault so that others can confirm that this is not just unique to my machine?
