    You could configure these areas as text fields and set a default value -
    inside the form field properties set to visible but not printing ...

    Brilliant Jon, thank you. Actually, your idea got me thinking: rather than setting up a new form field for each of the many links I wanted to not print and reformatting them and relinking them, I discovered I can just set up a blank form field on top of my link, set the background colour to white but make it 'hidden but printable'. This way, it preserves my existing links (already created in InDesign) but they now don't print. And it'll be really quick to set up. So thank you so much for setting me on the right path.
