Hi everyone,

I use InDesign to create a monthly newsletter, which contains multiple hyperlinks. It works as an interactive PDF, but I need to send it as the body of an email. When I insert as an object it loses all the links or only keeps one link and converts the file to an image. Does anyone have recommendations on how to export the file, so it keeps the hyperlinks and works in the body of an email? Thank you.

Personally, I wouldn't touch HTML from InDesign unless I was using the Ajar in5 plugin.

Another option is to use Dreamweaver, which is included in the CC software.

 

Lastly, depending on the email service you use, most offer the ability to create the newsletter on their site. For example, I use a free account from SendInBlue to send out my HTML newsletters.
