Hyperlinks in Word not working in PDF

By kktaps ·
Hi

Hyperlinks to websites inserted in MS Word (2000) work perfectly well therein, but when the document is converted to PDF, these do not work, though they do show up as links.

Hyperlinks in Word not working in PDF

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Hyperlinks in Word not wo ...

I have not seen a PDF file that has working hyperlinks, I don't say that it is not possible just that I have not seen one. I suspect it is to with the fact that hyperlinks work by having the underlying program accept and use html code, whereas the applications for viewing PDF are usually static display programs, thus I doubt that they have the ability to read the code as an active html instuction.

Personally I don't use PDF because they are such troublsome crap for the end user, almost impossible to cut and paste anything from or do anything with the content. I usually bypass using any PDF research docs as references for any assignments or reports as it is so hard to do anything with.

First of all - you need the full version of Adobe Acrobat. Then open Acrobat with no document loaded - then click the File menu and select "Create PDF" file "From Web Page" - put the web address in the dialog box - and select how many levels deep you wish acrobat to go - or select "Get Entire Site" - That's it.
