H&M auto generates unexpected links

Unread post by Alex Matrosov » Tue Jan 14, 2020 9:47 am

Hello!
Please, help)
In my project, I've got some strings like "http://127.0.0.1:34030". In my case, it isn't a link, it's just a parameter value, and it set to plain text, without adding any links. But when I publish a PDF, it automatically generates a link. How can I set H&M not to create auto links?
Thanks in advance for your help!

PS Unfortunately, I didn't figure out how to attach screenshots here.

Hi Alex,

You just need to turn off the automatic creation of links. Go to View > Program Options > Editor and turn off "Automatically detect URLs"

To post screenshots on the forum click on the Attachments tab below the topic. Use the Add Files button to select your screenshot (the file name should not contain any spaces or special characters) and then use the Inline button to insert it in your posting at the cursor position.

This is the magic of Adobe Reader. Help+Manual does not insert a link here, it is Adobe Reader that does it. Tip: format the http part somewhat differently, e.g. italic or bold. That breaks this string into two parts and Adobe doesn't recognize it anymore.
