InDesign Hyperlinks breaking when over two lines

Hello,

 

I've searched the InDesign forum but can't seem to find a solution to my issue.  When I copy and paste or even manually type in a hyperlink address which spans over two lines - when converted to PDF it breaks at the end of the first line.

I've enabled "Show Hidden Characters" and there's no breaks showing. I've set to [No Language] and this hasn't resolved the issue.  I could set the character style to "No Breaks" but as the column text is wrapped around pull out text and inside a box it jumps to the line where the pull out text/box finishes. I also have hypenate disabled.

 

I'm also on the latest version of InDesign 2020 - 15.1.1

 

Attached is a PDF of the page I'm having an issue with. Any feedback would be much appreciated, thank you.

 

Kind regards

Barry

Your screen shows press quality *without* include Hyperlinks. 

What happens if you ...

Turn that switch on

or

Export to Interactive PDF?

Setting to No Language is not the way...

What does your Hyperlinks panel say about the links? Do they green light?

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

The hyperlink has the hyperlink url a underlined number 2 (click to select source) and a green light.

 

Kind regards

So, in other words, when you look at the Hyperlink Options, you see the whole URL spelled correctly and not truncated, correct?

Hi Mike,

 

Everytime I select "include hyperlinks" InDesign crashes everytime!

 

Just made a discovery just now, If I convert to PDF in "High Quality Print" the link is working fine, the whole hyperlink is intact! Strange!

 

Just like to say thank you for acknowledging my query/issue - I'll put together the magazine and see if it works throughout.

 

Again, thank you.

 

Barry
