Hyperlink in idml file

Hello everyone,

My environment is Windows 10 + Indesign 18.5.

I received a set of indb and indd files from a retired person.
But hyperlinks are broken.

So I exported as idml and confirm the path, like this.

<Hyperlink ~~~
  <Properties>
    <Destination type="list">
      <ListItem type="string">C:\xxxx\filename.indd</ListItem>

The destination is indd, but now, current file is idml.

 

If I modify as a circular reference from FILE01.idml to FILE01.idml, the InDesign application will hang and display an error at the end.

Is it not possible to create references within the same file?

How can I modify these hyperlinks?

 

Regards,

The following seems to be working well.
Is it correct? ?

original:

<Destination type="list">
    <ListItem type="string">C:\xxxx\FILE01.indd</ListItem>

 

hung and error:

<Destination type="list">
    <ListItem type="string">C:\xxxx\FILE01.idml</ListItem>

 

well ? :

<Destination type="object">HyperlinkURLDestination/C%3a\xxxx\FILE01.idml</Destination>

If that works to your satisfaction? So well, this is the way…

 

FWIW: I still wonder why this works at all.

Because IDML is not an end format, but an interchange format.

So how do you repair it in the correct way?
Is it correct to modify each link in the indd file one by one, with checking the original link destination with idml?

A new HyperlinkURLDestination tag might also have been needed.
