When creating hyperlinks, it's a three step process. First, create Hyperlink Destinations for where you want the hyperlinks to take you. Use the New Hyperlink Destination command on the Hyperlinks panel. You can set text anchors, pages or URLs as destinations. Second, create Hyperlinks which point to specific hyperlink destinations. You can hyperlink to pages, text anchors, URLs, shared destinations or email addresses. Third, test the hyperlinks using the Go to Source and Go to Destination commands on the Hyperlinks panel.
I figured this was a good spot for this question.
When creating email links and PDFing, the @ symbol appears as %40 when you mouse over the email address in Acrobat or Adobe Reader. Do you know of a way to prevent this?
I found that using the underscore in the Subject instead of space (for multiple words) removed the %20 (as I do with most web-compliant file names), but I can't seem to find a fix for the @ symbol.
Hope you are well,
Yes, when I create an email link, make the InDesign file into a PDF, and pause over the link I also see %40. However, on my Mac, clicking the link successfully launches my email client (Mail) and properly inserts the email address into the email.
Are you finding cases where this does not work?
Yes, the link does work fine. My only issue was the display of the %40, I didn't know if there was a way to avoid that
