I have Indesign files that were created for the printed version of our monthly magazine. However, when I export them to an interactive pdf for our subscribers to view, all of the hyperlinked areas have yellow shading around them. When I created the hyperlinks I chose the 'invisible rectangle' option under appearance, so I'm not sure where this shading is coming from. Is there a setting I am missing somewhere?
can you show us some screenshots?
I'm not seeing your screenshot.
This is a rather long thread about what sounds like a similar problem, but there may be some helpful direction in the last post: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/is-it-possible-to-remove-yellow-text-background-in-the-entire...
I don't think you can avoid this, because it's PDF viewer dependent.
My PDF viewer in Firefox on Windows 10 will do this all the time with hyperlinks.
Not so if the PDF is viewed with Acrobat Pro or Adobe Reader.
