Maintaining hyperlinks in PDF documents
  

Hello,
I have hyperlinks in a Word document that I am converting to PDF and but the links are not converting. So, I then created links in the Adobe document however; rather than opening up a web browser, the links are creating more pages in my PDF document. HELP!! It's making me crazy!

Thanks

Maintaining hyperlinks in PDF documents

Hi ,
There is a setting in Acrobat preferences which governs whether a link will be opened in browser or it will be appended in PDF. It seems your Acrobat installation is currently set to append web page to PDF on link click. Please try the following to change this:
  • Launch Acrobat.
  • Go to Edit-> Preferences from main menu (or Press Ctrl+K on windows)
  • Choose WebCapture from the list.
  • On right pane change 'Open Web Links' to 'In Web Browser'
  • Click 'OK'

Hope this solves the problem.

Re: Maintaining hyperlinks in PDF documents

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your reply and guidance! and it worked also. But .can you tell me why all of the sudden, my links that I create in my Word document are not active when I convert the Word document to Adobe. This all of the sudden started to happen. I haven't changed anything (on purpose that is). I've created 100's of docs with links and converted them. All of the sudden, they do not work.

Thanks so much.

Re: Maintaining hyperlinks in PDF documents

Hi ,
If you are converting a word document inside Acrobat then try the following:
  • Launch Acrobat
  • Go to Edit -> Preferences (or Press Ctrl+K)
  • Choose ‘Convert to PDF’ from the list
  • Choose ‘Microsoft Office Word’ from the list in right pane
  • Click ‘Edit’ button
  • Make sure ‘Add links to Adobe PDF file’ is checked.
  • Click ‘OK’

But if you are using Adobe PDF option inside Microsoft Office Word then try this:
  • Launch Word
  • Click ‘Adobe PDF’ from main menu
  • Choose settings option
  • Make sure ‘Add Links’ checkbox is checked.
  • Click ‘OK’

Good luck !
