I have a huge directory of business names, addresses, and web addresses that I convert for a magazine each month. The Convert URLs to Hyperlinks has been invaluable to handle all the listings. There are about 1400. The problem is that with lots of new domains popping up, InDesign is not detecting them all. For example, some of them end in .wine, .bank, .info, etc. Is there an easy way to add these domains so that InDesign can detect them when I run the Convert URL to Hyperlinks command? This adds about an hour to my work every month and I am eager for a solution. Thank you!

No way!  I think this feature is implemented in JavaScript, but the files are in binary format so that no one would mess up them.
