Issue with links to pages within document

I'm having trouble editing links to pages within document. I have a list of links (similar to a table of contents) Once a link has been made, if I try to edit it, it changes all of the links in the list. It is doing this in more than one document so I know it's not the document.

Also, Is there a way to clear all the links and start over? It's acting like it's a bug. Very strange. Please help!

I'm using InDesign version 14.0.3 Mac OS 10.13.6

Sounds weird.

When you say "change all the links," changes in what way?

To clear links, select them all in the Hyperlinks panel, and then click on the trashcan icon to delete as usual.

You could then also open the flyout menu of the Hyperlinks panel and select "Delete all unused hyperlink destinations" to be on the safe side.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience with the links. In addition to the earlier response, I'd recommend updating to Adobe InDesign 2020(v15.0.3) for better performance and stability.
You may also check out help article https://helpx.adobe.com/in/indesign/using/hyperlinks.html#manage_hyperlinks to know how to manage hyperlinks.

Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
