var h = app.documents[0].hyperlinks.everyItem().getElements()

for(var i = 0; i < h.length; i++)

{

    if(h.source.constructor.name != "HyperlinkTextSource")

          continue;

    var pt = h.source.sourceText.parentTextFrames[0]

    var nm = h.name

    var newSource = app.documents[0].hyperlinkPageItemSources.add(pt)

    var nh = app.documents[0].hyperlinks.add(newSource, h.destination)

    h.remove()

    nh.name = nm

}
