I converted a file to PDF from Word 2007 and the links are not active.

Can anyone tell me what is up with that? The word 2007 shows you have to press CTRL +click to use links, is that related? I will try to change that as it does not work in the PDF document at all.

Thank you

Click to follow hyperlinks

Show AllHide All

By default, you follow — or open — hyperlinks (hyperlink: Colored and underlined text or a graphic that you click to go to a file, a location in a file, a Web page on the World Wide Web, or a Web page on an intranet. Hyperlinks can also go to newsgroups and to Gopher, Telnet, and FTP sites.) by pressing CTRL while clicking the hyperlink. If you prefer, you can set hyperlinks so that you follow the hyperlinks by just clicking them.

1.Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Word Options.

2.Click Advanced.

3.Under Editing options, clear the Use CTRL+ Click to follow hyperlink check box.

Hi, in the PDF file links are active with doPDF only if the original link was in detailed format such as http ... or www ... hidden hyperlinks (such as those in the table of contents) cannot be converted by doPDF as it would require an additional Word addon. If you are interested we have an addon available in novaPDF Standard or Professional, both detailed here - (however this is a commercial product.
