broken hyperlinks when exporting to word

the hyperlinks exported in word format have "/Users/usename/Desktop/" is appended to the beginning of every link. this is in addition the the 3+ year old bug that you cannot leave the "topic hyperlink with prefix" field blank when exporting to word or it defaults to also appending "see more:" to the hyperlink.

Right now I have to do a find/replace in word (or indesign if I import to that). I was forced to try as a workaround this because export to dynamic pdf was removed from the app.

I could have fixed that with yet another workaround of printing to pdf from my browser after exporting a html5 file but then the margins were broken so I had to apply another workaround of zooming out to 85% but this probably doesn't work with larger maps! 

 I'm hoping a dev or someone in charge sees this and maybe we can get some of these basic bugs fixed.

side question: Do these bugs also plague the windows version?
