MS Word, Links and PDF Files

If you're trying to convert MS Word documents into PDF files, here are some issues to consider.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

1. Does your MS Word document contain links or hyperlinks to web sites?

Most Word to PDF file converters such as PDF Factory Pro can handle such clickable links if the links contain "http://"

If your clickable links to external web sites do not contain a visible "http://" then you might consider trying PDF995 (in conjuction with Edit995).

2. Does your MS Word document contain internal links or hyperlinks to bookmarks within your doc file?

If you convert your Word file into PDF using PDF Factory Pro, for example, the internal links will not be clickable. They'll just look like blue underlined text, but they won't be live links.

In this case, you may be better off using Adobe Acrobat when it comes to creating your PDFs.

3. Do you have hyperlinks in your MS Word headers or footers?

They won't be clickable if you use Adobe Acrobat, but they will be clickable if your hyperlinks in the header/footer areas start with "http://" and if you use PDF creation software such as PDF Factory Pro.
