Re: Still need help with InDesign hyperlinks
On another thread, I've been hashing out a problem I'm having importing
RTF files with hyperlinks into InDesign. My RTF is generated by Doxygen
directly from code, and includes hundreds of hyperlinks. I need to retain
those hyperlinks when importing/placing into InDesign CS 2. Unfortunately,
if I import the RTF directly, I get gobbledegook like
640 pages of it, to be precise.
When I import the RTF into Word, the hyperlinks work fine. I then save the
Word file BACK to an RTF file, and when I import either the Word file or the
Word-to-RTF file, everything *looks* just fine. Except that the hyperlinks
have all lost their links. The text is still formatting correctly: blue font
with a single underline. But there are no hyplerlinks attached to that text.
It's very difficult and "unintuitive" to add hyperlinks to an InDesign
document; adding several hundred is a daunting task. I'm afraid there will
be many errors creeping in. Before I start manually adding all these
hyperlinks back, I would like to know if any expert InDesign users here have
confronted this problem and solved it.
The Adobe user forums do not appear to address this issue at all.
