Problem converting to pdf

Postby laurie » Wed Dec 19, 2007 8:40 pm


I hope someone can help. I have a word document with MANY links in it that I converted to a pdf. But now all the links do not work - some do, but many don't.

I have done this with this document in the past and it has worked ok. The links all work in the word document, so it seems to be an issue with the pdf. I'm using Adobe acrobat.

Please advise.

Thank you.

Hi Laurie,

Did you try sending the pdf to someone else? My daughter had the same problem, also used Adobe, and thought the links didn't work. But when she sent it to me, the links were all fine.

Don't ask me why, that part I haven't a clue.

Hi Carol,

Thanks for your response. It is actually on a download page when someone buys my product. The links don't work when we get into it, and also the man at Adobe got into it, and they didn't work for him either.

I am at a loss as what to do.

Try using something else to convert the document to a PDF. I hear open office is one of the easiest, and its free:

Office 07

I know Microsoft Office 07 allows you to save as pdf. If you have 07' I can probably find the link for you to download the fix...

I've saved a few Word docs successfully.
