Exporting to ePub (reflowable) when document has endnotes containing hyperlinks causes InDesign to hang
Version of Adobe InDesign: 15.1.2 / macOS 10.15.6
Steps to reproduce the issues: When exporting a document with endnotes containing hyperlinks to ePub (reflowable), InDesign hangs and needs to be force quit. Have tested removing all hyperlinks to tests, and document exports correctly. Have tested putting hyperlinks outside of endnotes and document exports correctly. The bug is specific to hyperlinks which are part of the endnote text.
Expected result: Successful export with endnotes reciprocally linked to text, and hyperlinks in endnote text active to respective URLs.
Actual result: InDesign hangs and needs to be force quit.
We have been able to reproduce the issue and it is currently under investigation.

In InDesign 2020 and 2021 latest version also I'm having the same issue. If I removed the hyperlink from the Endnote Epub converted.

I'm having the same problem using InDesign CC2021 on iMac, Late 2015 (OS Mojave 10.14.6). The document has endnotes that work perfectly (round tripping) when exported to epub. When I add a few hyperlinks that appear within the endnotes and export to epub again, the hyperlinks don't work. If I add too many hyperlinks, InDesign freezes.
I'm experiencing similar problem trying to export a book with endnotes and hyperlinks contained with InD 2020. It's not exporting the endnotes backlinks properly and with active hyperlinks it crashes down during the export. So it's still an isuue it seems… 😟
