hyperlinks aren't working

I’m not sure what’s happening, but my links aren’t compiling. I have links set in the file, but when I compile, the links are gone.

First, check to make sure your compile settings are not stripping out hyperlinks entirely. You will find that option at the bottom of the Transformations compile pane, assuming the output format you are using even supports them to begin with. Speaking of that, it would help to know the format you are using and the software that you are using to open that compiled file. For example, one might be using RTF to compile to MS Word, but without the “Ensure hyperlinks are colored and underlined” option enabled in the RTF Compatibility pane. With that specific combination, you would have links, but they would be invisible because Word does not automatically underscore and colour links blue.
