Why don't the hot links work in my pdf docs
They work in others Find on the net
I need those links to work for this to be a viable option for me

In order to have links clickable in the PDF, in the original file they have to be in the www or http format (e.g. , ), so they don't have to be hidden links (a word that links to a page will not be clickable in the pdf). Probably you have them as hidden links and that's why they don't get converted.
P.S. I understand you're new to the forum, but in the future please don't post the same question multiple times in different posts and especially not in the Announcements forum (I've moved this post for now). Thank you.

Hallo Softland,
thanks for this explanation, but I´ve another problem which is near the described in your posting:

The Original File is a MS-Word-XP Document and the content contains the follwing links:
The first:

The second:
Both are not hidden links and both are within correctly html-syntax.
Within the ms-word-file both links are fully functional - but after the file is converted to a doPDF-File I can using only the first. Remember: the caracters "http://" are not included ..
Is ther a troubleshooting? I need urgently links like "mailto: ...." The great "brother" from Adobe generates this "mailto:...."-links correctly.
Thanks for all your answers.
Best regards

Actually if you put in only the email address (for example test [at] test [dot] com) it will be converted to a clickable link, so the parameter part is what makes it confusing for dopdf. If possible I would remove the parameters.
