In our testing, Hyperlinker found 100% of all valid URLs, including those using the new gTLDs.
An intuitive interface makes creating thousands of hyperlinks as easy as clicking a button.
Hyperlinker's settings give you unparalleled control over your search parameters and output.
Why wait for your clients and readers to tell you their eBook links aren’t working?

*This comparison is based on the latest released version of ‘Adobe’s Convert URLs to Hyperlinks’ script at the time of testing (Adobe InDesign CC 2019). In older versions of InDesign, like CS6, Adobe’s script fails to find many valid URLs and fails to add missing schemes.
The first time I used Hyperlinker I was blown away by how quickly and seamlessly it was able to find and convert links in a large document. Thank you for this brilliant software that will save so much time (and sanity).
As a designer who needs to convert the print journals I produce into interactive PDFs, I was so relieved to find Hyperlinker. It makes what was previously a slow, tedious and error-prone process into a quick, easy and accurate one.
What a great script! This is a huge timesaver and does exactly what is needed for books that have a lot of links. I easily recouped the cost of the script within minutes.
