InDesign hyperlink %0D bug
When I cut and paste URLs from a text document into the hyperlink dialog box, I can accidentally get a carriage return included. InDesign "includes" the carriage return in the one-line dialog box field but gives no indication that it's there.
Once I export the InDesign document to a PDF and then click on the link in the PDF, the link shows with a %0D at the end and it fails with a 404 not found.
This is extremely annoying because InDesign gives no indication that the carriage return is there with its one-line link dialog box field.
What should happen is InDesign should truncate control characters at the end of a URL. It should also truncate spaces at the end of a URL because we've seen %20 show up occasionally as well and that also can't easily be seen and causes the URL to fail. Have your programmers truncate any character at the end of a URL that is ASCII 20 or less and you will be golden!

This can also happen without accidentally copying a space at the end of the URL.
A way around this bug (until fixed) is to make sure you copy the URL with a forward slash at the end (eg www.websiteaddress/url/)
