I am working on converting an academic paper from Word to ePub. There are hundreds of hyperlinks in the document.
Export to ePub fails, and after research, I see the problem is ampersands in 151 of the hyperlinks. (per http://www.pigsgourdsandwikis.com/2010/07/hyperlink-causes-indesign-export-to.html).
I used Find to find all ampersands when the character style is Hyperlink and replace with %26 (percent-twentysix).
Export to ePub still fails. After editing the partial XHTML file, I see that Find and Replace is changing the displayed text in the hyperlink, but it is not changing the actual link stored in the hyperlinks panel.
Is there a way to:
- globally change any ampersand stored in the hyperlinks panel?
- force InDesign to change the hyperlink to the current text
I tried the Convert URL's to Hyperlinks command, but it appears that this only affects URL's that are not already hyperlinks
Thanks in advance
