Dear users,

 

I am a first time user of Indesign. Please pardon my stupid questions.

 

I have tried to set up a hyperlink to this address "oe.cd/publications", using the function "New Hyperlink from URL" .  When I exported it to PDF, Acrobat Reader could not recognise that it was a URL. 

 

I also tried to hyperlink to "https://www.oecd.org/publication" (its original address) while maintaining "oe.cd/publications" in the text. It did not work.

 

Then I tried "https://www.oe.cd/publicationss". Acrobat Reader could not detect it at first, but when I had already clicked on other hyperlinks in the document, it started to recognise it.

 

May I know how to solve this problem, please?

 

Thank you

Copy and paste the URL from the actual website into the New Hyperlink dialogue box to ensure it's correct.

The link in the text in the document can be a word or words on an image.

Export the document as an Interactive PDF.
