    hyperlinks gone astray

    texane02

      I'm building tables of contents programmatically and save them as tagged text for importing into InDesign (CS3) for later export to PDF.

      That works fine for bookmarks and hyperlinks to web sites but not for links to other PDF documents. Why?

       

      In fact if you export a document as tagged text and then re-import that same tagged text again, the bookmarks and hyperlinks to websites still work but the file://links are lost (bug in CS3 ?).

       

      I've already posted this question in the regular forum, but got no answer and think now that I might be able to solve the problem through scripting, e.g. by sending a fake http link and then converting it to a file link.

       

      Thanks for any suggestions on how this could be achieved (in javascript or vbs).
