Publisher: Hyperlinks incorrect after editing and export.


Recommended Posts

I just updated to 1.9.3. My client wanted to update links in a PDF document. After I edited these, they were incorrect after export. A few issues arose. 

1. The link I inputted with a subdomain Amark.com/gar worked correctly for me in Apple Preview but only the main website Amarki.com opened for him (not sure what PDF viewer he was using).

2. The Zoom link I updated for a webinar register link was completely wrong and went to a broken page for both of us. I suspect this may have been an old link but not sure if that's it or if it was altered by Publisher somehow on export.

3. Another oddity is that when I hover over the links in Apple Preview, what displays is inconsistent. Sometimes it shows the correct links and sometimes it displays the incorrect links. This is with keeping the document open and not changing anything. 

I double checked the links in the working file and they are correct. Problem persists after re-exporting.

If you are Opening a PDF in Publisher then I think you will need to reestablish all the links manually.

The document was created in Affinity. I opened the working file, edited the links, and then exported again. It appears that maybe the new links are not overwriting the old. It was also exported with a different file name so it's not a refresh issue in the PDF viewer.

Can you supply the document so we can see what is happening?
