Inside Adobe InDesign Vol 4
I’m having trouble printing a job from InDesign. The master page is set up with columns and guides, which also appear on my 16-page layout. Well, the columns and guides are imaging! Is there a setting I need to turn off that I’m not seeing?

One of the predominant goals of a page designer is to produce documents readers can enjoy. Most of that enjoyment stems from the appearance and content in the document but thereâ€™s another key factor. The ability to navigate through a publication without getting lost also adds to a readerâ€™s experience. Hyperlinks are essential tools that help readers get where they want to go.
Introduction to hyperlinks
A hyperlink is a navigation elementâ€”either text or an objectâ€”in an electronic document. When a user hovers a cursor over a hyperlink, its appearance changes to indicate a link. Clicking on the link takes the user to a new destination, which may be an area on the same page, a different page, or an entirely different document or website published on the Internet or a company intranet.
You can set up hyperlinks in your InDesign documents so that when you export to PDF, your readers can jump to other areas in the active PDF, to other PDF documents, or to URLs
