Created book with individual chapters (now over 1400 pages long) using InDesign CC 2018. Book has over 500 links. Imported (converted) files into update 2019. Exporting to PDF now...links for TOC and any internet links are hosed, don't work. Of course can't go back to 2018 version. I've seen posts on problems like this but haven't seen a comment on how to deal with this specific problem. Any ideas.

I have to ask: Why did you ditch your copy of CC 2018 and move to CC 2019 when you hadn't finished a major project that used it? Did you  actually uninstall CC 2018? (These days, you are usually only able to download the most recent version of an application—which is InDesign 2020 and InDesign CC 2019.)

Hi, thanks for responding. I didn't ditch it. I update this book every year. I had set preferences to autoupdate the program. Last year, when I started the annual revision project the files had to be converted, and then the problems began.

Hi BalancingAct,

you said: Of course can't go back to 2018 version.

 

Why? You can still download and install InDesign CC 2018 from this source:

https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2018-direct-download-links.html

 

After that the CC Desktop App should recognize your installed version and suggests an update to the latest CC 2018 13.1.1.110 version.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

Ah, thank you for responding. Yes, I know about reinstalling the program.
Unfortunately, the 2018 version will not open the "new" files that had been
converted by the newer software version. Sees them as corrupted. I feel I am
faced with recreating all the links . a daunting task and one I am loathe to
take on.



Best,

Leslie
