Create PDFs with embedded URLs from Word documents
Authored by: jcooper11 on Sep 12, '06 10:54:20AM

Huh? Embedded URLs ARE live for me, printing to PDF from Word 2004, reading w/ Reader 7, OS 10.4.7.

URL recognition built into Adobe Reader 7.x
Authored by: theorik on Sep 13, '06 06:01:43AM
Adobe Reader 7.x has a feature to recognise what might be URLs (you can even switch it off in Preferences -> General) – just try to PDF unlinked plain text URLs from Word – AR will recognise them and make them clickable; viewers relying only on PDF links, like Preview, XPDF etc. don't.

To sum up: Those "links" aren't links, they're recognisable URLs.

So if you use links that aren't URLs (<a href="http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobatstd/">like this</a>) it shouldn't work in AR, either.

Cheers,
Theorík
