Hello all,

 

When exporting to an Interactive PDF, how do I make it so that links in the PDF are not highlighted? So at the moment it looks like this:

How do I have it so that: 1) the link is there but not the blue highlight? Or 2) have the highlight show when you hover over it only?

 

Thank you.

Create a Character Style for your hyperlinks. Do not use mult-state links as they won't work on several devices.

Hello Derek, thanks for your reply.

 

So I've been messing around with the character style options for hyperlinks, and added different coloured underlines, fonts etc etc, but I still can't figure how to get rid of the blue highlight colour when the file is actually exported to the PDF? It will show all the changes I've made to the colour, the font, the underlining etc., but the blue highlighted box is still there. How do I get rid of that box as shown in the image in the initial post?

 

Thanks.

Wow, thank you, that was it. Just tried it with a different reader and there is no highlight.

 

Thank you both for your answers.
