Clickable Links in PDF Headers and Footers

When you use MS Word 2000 and place clickable links or hyperlinks in the header or footer section of your pages, these are no longer clickable when you convert the document into a PDF file. Fortunately, there's a solution to that problem.

To create clickable links in PDF headers and footers, you can use either's PDF Factory Pro or's PDFEdit995.

PDF Factory Pro will convert any text that looks like a web page address (i.e., into a clickable hyperlink no matter where it appears in the document. However, I haven't figured out how to make non-URL-looking words or phrases into clickable hyperlinks (i.e., Philippine Literature).

PDFEdit995 can do what PDF Factory Pro does. In addition, it can produce clickable links for non-URL-looking words or phrases that appear in the header or footer sections of your document. However, this will work only if you use Word2000 in conjunction with PDFEdit995, especially if the links you will put in have dashes or hyphens in them.
