Join Michael Murphy for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding hyperlinks to text, part of InDesign CS6: HTML.
A clickable hyperlink within text is about…the most basic form of interactivity on any…webpage and just about the only interactivity…you can include in an InDesign HTML export.…In this movie we'll take a look at how to…set up a simple text based email and web based hyperlink.…In this sample file we have just a single text frame…with a paragraph of text that happens to include references to both…an email address and a URL.…When we export to HTML, we want those to be working hyperlinks.…
So the first thing I'm going to do is select all of the email address,…email@example.com, and from the hyperlinks panel menu, which if you don't…already have it open you can get to from Window Interactive > Hyperlinks.…I'm going to choose New Hyperlink.…Now there are a number of ways to get hyperlinks created in InDesign.…Some of them are meant to speed up the process for you.…New Hyperlink from URL will automatically create a hyperlink from…the selected URL and apply it To the selected text.…
It's faster, but it doesn't allow you access to all of the options.…
