Hyperlink Stroke Width

Is there a setting for the visible stroke width of hyperlinks. It's not a huge issue as the stroke width is not visible on the final document, but when viewing all hyperlinks, the stroke widths are all over the place and it's kind of frustrating to look at. It would be nice if they were all the same width, or adjustable. But I can't find anywhere to set any parameters for hyperlinks.

Basically it's a catalogue. I've added hyperlinks to all the product images and their corresponding copy. This creates a dashed line around the text boxes and images which is only visible to me - they don't show on the PDFs. However for me, viewing the file in normal mode, almost all of these hyperlinks are showing at different weights and there doesn't seem to be any ryhme or reason. Some are thick, some thin. Nowhere can I see where these varying widths are coming from as the actual items and text boxes have all of their stroke widths set to "0".

 

Again - it doesn't effect the final product, it just seem weird that I can't control how they're displayed - or maybe I can but just can't find it.

Hi @Sidney Crosby:

 

You can control the width and position of underlines in InDesign and hyperlinks are using the underline settings. Hyperlinks have their own character style and underline controls. However, I suspect your underlines have inadvertant overrides.

Make sure other inline formatting (i.e., bold, italic) is using character styles, and then select the text, and Ctrl/Cmd click on Clear Overrides in Selection button at the bottom of the Paragraph Styles panel to clear just the character overrides.
