as a work around, I'm retyping the text elsewhere, applying the link, and then copying and pasting over top of the "broken" link.

You may want to try to select and edit the problematic broken links through the Hyperlinks panel.
Select the Window>Interactive>Hyperlinks menu command to open the panel. This should let you select any hyperlink in the document and edit each of them to a satisfactory result for you.
@Michael Witherell -- Awesome reply. I laughed ...
yes, I did use that hyperlink panel. it would not allow me to edit them there, or remove the link. hence my request for help, i think it's a bug in this build of indesign.
yes, very funny! I think the behavior is actually a bug in the program, so exporting to IDML etc seems like a lot of work for something that should be fixed by the developers! Thanks again for the laff.
We here at my company are late to the party of Creative Cloud and have just recently installed CC. The question concerning crashing when creating links is relevant and causing issues for our creatives. We are using Windows OS.
Thanks for any assistance.
this thread here is about InDesign CC 2017 started about a year ago.
You probably have installed CC 2018.
If that's the case please open a new thread on the issues you are seeing.
Provide details on version numbers for InDesign and Windows system.
Also let us know what kind of links you are doing.
