Acrobat incorrectly adding links to text that contains the word 'news:'
Hi, I have been making PDFs from InDesign CC 2019 running on Mac OS High Sierra. When opening the PDFs in Acrobat Pro DC, it's creating broken links from text that does not look like a URL and where no links have been specified. I think it's the 'Create Links from URLs' feature in Acrobat preferences trying to be helpful but failing miserably. This seems to affect text that uses a colon : but I can't ask my client not to use colons in their copy just because Acrobat is incorrectly reading it as a URL. My client is asking my why there are broken links, but I don't have the option of removing these links as both InDesign and Acrobat say that there are no links in the document. Please can you give me any suggestions as this isn't working.
I am sorry for the inconvenience you are facing.
