I'm attempting to create a hyperlink in this InDesign document, but whenever I do, it's creating this big blue rectangle across my document (see screenshot). When I change the hyperlink style to "None" or "Same Style," the link becomes nonfunctional. Anybody know this one?Screen Shot 2021-05-11 at 10.46.36 AM.pngScreen Shot 2021-05-11 at 10.47.05 AM.png

To add to Uwe's reply, you should not lose the hyperlink function by changing the character style applied. Assume you are changing this under the "Character Style" section of the Hyperlink dialog? Well, in any event, you can just change the definition of the Character Style "Hyperlink" to be something other than underline.
