Chapter 13 Extracting Hyperlinks

Anyone who has browsed the web will be familiar with the hyperlink as a navigational item which, when clicked, takes the viewer to a different webpage (or even a different part of the same webpage). Further, they can be used to trigger tasks like file transfer or to open up a new email.

InDesign allows you to add hyperlinks to your content, supporting the common protocols:

http:// 
https://
ftp://
mailto:

Similarly, InDesign content can be defined as an anchor, to operate as a destination within the document that can be targetted by hyperlinks.

For information on using hyperlinks in InDesign, see the InDesign documentation.

Atomik Xport SE supports the extraction of InDesign hyperlinks and anchors to your XML. This means that hyperlinks and anchors in your layout can be retained and used to navigate through whatever electronic media you choose for repurposing your XML.
