Multiple line hyperlinks tab out of order when exported to PDF.
Hi there. For whatever reason, when I have hyperlinks that wrap to a new line in InDesign, Acrobat tabs through them in the reverse order when exported as a PDF. Here is an example:
[Let's say this sentence is a hyperlink that
has wrapped to a new line.]
When exported to a PDF, the tab order starts at [has wrapped to a new line.] then tabs to [Let's say this sentence is a hyperlink that]. And it continues that method throughout the piece. This is with tabbing set to document structure. If I set the tabbing method to "row", it tabs correctly, but that's not ideal in mutli-column layouts. The copy containing the hyperlinks are in single containers.
I can fix it by diving into the tags in Acrobat and adjusting the order, but that isn't ideal as my InDesign docs usually have numerous hyperlinks, go through multiple proofs, and sometimes have multiple designers touching the piece. Is there a way to correct this in InDesign?
This person had the same problem as me back in version 13.1, but I didn't see any kind of resolution:
Seeing as it's been awhile, I'm hoping this has been resolved, or there is a work-around.
My Adobe InDesign version: 17.2.1
Thanks in advance!
Is the text out of order, or is it just the Link - OBJR that is out of order? If it's just the OBJR, it doesn't really matter, since there is no real difference between the two. That is what happens for me. The text containers within the parent <Link> tag go in the correct order.
However, I believe you're supposed to avoid having two OBJR tags.
