Hyperlink on Text Still Works if NOT Visible

Recommended Posts

Hello, I think I found a bug.

When I insert a hyperlink on some text in a text frame, it will still work even though I hide that text frame. Meaning, I hide the hyperlink, export the PDF, open the PDF and click in the area where the label is hidden and the hyperlink still works.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Add a text frame
  2. Add some text
  3. Insert a hyperlink to a URL
  4. Go into Layers pane
  5. Uncheck the text frame so it is no longer visible
  6. Export to PDF
  7. Click in the area where the text frame is

What happens?

A browser opens up and you are navigated to the URL.

What is expected to happen?

Nothing should happen and the hyperlink should not be there if the text frame is not visible.
