I have a long text with some hyperlinks in it. All hyperlinks except of one are automaticaly recognised and behave in PDF as hyperlink. One not. How to do it manually?
You need to tell us what you have tried, Scott answers should have worked. Highlight the text, and use the Hyperlink panel to add the link.– bentehSep 14, 2014 at 22:48

There are two things required for creating functional hyperlinks in a PDF from InDesign:
- Link defined in
- PDF Export supporting hyperlinks.
If you've already created the definition in the
Hyperlinks panel as @Scott recommended, then my bet is that you are using an PDF export that doesn't support interactivity, and those hyperlink settings are being ignored when generating the PDF.
I don't have version 5.5, so I can't verify exactly what your screens look like, but in CC, there are two ways to include interactive elements - it should be similar for you:
Adobe PDF (Interactive) when choosing the filename:
Then set whatever options you like on the Export Settings dialogue.
If you select
Adobe PDF (Print), or if you only have one PDF export option when choosing the filename, then in the PDF options dialogue, be sure to make sure
Hyperlinks is checked in the

Already done, but nothing changes. In PDF, the text is still just a text.– ZbychSep 14, 2014 at 18:53
I just fixed this in my own document. I had the same problem, where all but one of my hyperlinks exported to PDF perfectly. I then realised that the link that I was pasting into the Hyperlinks panel didn't have 'http://' in front; I had pasted in a link that began as www. Once I added http:// to the beginning of the URL in the panel, it exported into the PDF perfectly. Hope that helps.
