Hello,

 

i have a Problem. 

I want to export a catalog from InDesign as a PDF for the WEB, in which there are many hyperlinks. Now in the exported PDF at each mouseover sees the hyperlink text (https:website....). Is there a way that only the mouse pointer changes its appearance without displaying any text?

Many thanks in advance for the answer.

Best regards

Norman

Why would you want it to? Why would you intentionally hide a URL?

 

It's a horrible idea. I would never consider clicking on anything without knowing where it's taking me.

Thank you for your fast response!

It is a product catalog, where practically the whole catalog is linked to the website and the store (where it is also available for download, or the customers who get it otherwise buy) and the visible links, at least that's what my boss thinks, interfere with the user experience and aesthetics. Besides, the competition has it the same way. But yes, it's a good point you made there. 🙂

If the whole purpose of this is links for a web store, why are you doing it as a PDF? Why not just create a proper website?

This can't possibly be efficient and trying to view this stuff in a browser is going to make for a really bad experience if someone clicks on a link and gets a security warning.
