Greetings - I printed a page, but the links are not clickable.
I understand the links must begin with http: //domain.com in order for them to be clickable. I also understand the links must be "visible". When I hover over the link on the webpage, the link is in the http: //domain.com format. That is what the directions mean by "visible"?
I used the "Print" icon on the web page (embedded on the page as a javascript command), and I also used "File>>Print" in my browser. Both printed in dopdf but neither document had clickable links.
Part of the source code for the original page is:

[Less than symbol]a href="http://www.bhg.com/kitchen/cabinets/mak ... l-inserts/" class="null" onclick=""[Greater than symbol]See how to make these sheet metal inserts.[Less than symbol]/a[Greater than symbol]
The original URL was:

http://www.bhg.com/bhg/templates/slides ... rue&page=1
Thanks -

Hello,
The link you mentioned as an example is a hidden link and cannot be converted using doPDF unfortunately.
This is an article with details about the active PDF link feature: http://www.novapdf.com/kb/create-active ... al-68.html which also applies to doPDF.
Thank you.

Thanks. I guess when links are hidden, I'll have to copy and paste into OpenOffice and print using their pdf option.
