I'm fairly new to Adobe Indesign, but I'm ok with various coding languages.
I want to create a web-based document that lists some products and product descriptions with each product description acting as a hyperlink to the online product itself.
I have got as far as creating the XML that lists the various attributes I want to import via XML, but I'm having trouble with defining the URL to act as the hyperlink.
My current xml looks something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
However, it just isn't working.
I'm probably missing something really simple, but I'm currently at a loss.
I just want to be able to drag elements from the structure onto my page, save as a PDF and know that each product will be linked through to the relevant hyperlink.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It is extremely simple. In Indesign once you have laid out the documents design and look. Highlight the desired text or object that will become the link. Goto: TYPE > HYPERLINKS & CROSS-REFRENCES > NEW HYPER LINK. In the pop up enter the URL and click 'OK". Make sure you save the file as PDF (interactive) just to be safe. It should work under PDF (print) and PDF (interactive) but you never know.
You need to go to Windows > Hyperlinks. Highlight the text or photo you want to hyperlink to the url and then place it in the document. After you need to save as a "interactive pdf" to view the url link. I hope that helps you!
