Hyperlinks should create automatically https and individual Alt-Text for mail-hyperlink
Interactive PDF creation should automatically create "https:" instead of the obsolete "http" for the hyperlinks. It should be possible to enter your own "alt" text for the e-mail link - this looks like an error when the user hovers over it with the mouse and gets %%%, etc. Therefore, unfortunately, I still solve it with a hyperlink "mailto:",... because at least this is also displayed here again. A sorting function for the hyperlinks would also be great - i.e. a folder system. Accessibility should also be significantly simplified here - that would be great.
When creating a pdf in InDesign all URLs that start with https are automatically turned into hyperlinks m(those that start with www. don't). I don't have the Hyperlinks box checked in the import options. Some of these URLs are long so then the link doesn't work and even though this is a print project it's causing confusion with my client. How do I turn off auto hyperlinks when using URLs that start with https?

Yes please do this, Adobe.

I have a workaround - if you have a way to identify your URLs (e.g. by giving them a style, starting them with www. or adding your own identifier that you will remove later) you can use search and replace to prepend https:// to all URLs in the document, then convert URLs to Hyperlinks, then use search and replace again to remove https:// if you want it on the hyperlink but not on the URL text.
still no "s" and i agree to nadia. okay, its no big deal, but if you have too create lots of hyperlinks ..you get nuts ^^
@ken i don't find such setting in preferences
Is this not fixed yet? Cʻmon Adobe shouldnʻt this be a user defined setting in preferences or something?
I strongly agree with this. Also: if you write a URL starting with 'www', InDesign should not automatically change this to 'http://www...'; Especially for created QR-codes. If you do not need this prefix (sometimes you do, but you should always check), why add it, especially with an obsolete one?
