I'm using CorelDraw - currently 2018 in Windows 10 64bit, but I've been struggling to get Internet links to behave for a long time now.
I'm just going to publish some simple steps to reproduce some issues here for convenience and discussion, then I'll raise a support ticket...
This causes me a massive headache when I'm working on any leaflet with around 10 links or more.
I'd be interested to know if anybody else is being frustrated by this or has found a way around it.
Just in case anybody finds this post having experienced the same issues, here's a quick update...
Corel support were able to reproduce this issue and so there's a ticket somewhere in their bug tracking system.
Interestingly, they were only able to reproduce the issue when using copying/duplication, which I routinely used to quickly create the boxes: draw one, copy right a couple of times, select all, copy down a few times. So, the working theory is that it's possible for Internet links on duplicated items to become confused. If that holds true, then a likely workaround is to ensure you draw a new object whenever you need to apply an Internet link.
I edit a newsletter that has various http and Mailto links throughout. Corel randomly mixes the link assignments whenever I "Publish to PDF" or print to a PDF. This problem has persisted going back to Corel X3 on Win7. I now use Corel 2018 on a Win10 machine and Corel has the very same behavior. I have wasted an enormous amount of time trying everything to solve the problem with no success. Extremely frustrating. My solution has been to add the links after completing the PDF by using a copy of "PDFill PDF Editor Pro", a fairly inexpensive PDF editing program. I have no connection with that company whatsoever. Similar PDF Editing programs may also work.
Well, I suppose it's nice to know that it's not just me. I've produced another newsletter since my previous post and did still get issues, even without copying or duplicating any objects with links, so that isn't a workaround. I haven't received any updates from Corel so I assume there's no progress on a fix either.
Corel inconsistently and randomly mixes link assignments without regard to how they are added when the file is output to a PDF. This has gone in versions at least back to X3 and the problem persists in Corel2018. I have no faith that it will ever be fixed. The workaround is to output a PDF with no links and then use an external PDF editing program to add them.
