Thanks Fred, perfect! I now have a PDF file with links that work.

 

What a great list! :)

How are you generating your PDF? Are you printing to a PostScript file and then 
distilling as per Robert Lauriston's recommended
workaround for your missing Adobe PDF printer issue?

If so, the key step he didn't mention is to make sure that the "Generate 
Acrobat Data" option in the Print Book dialog is selected.
The "Acrobat data" this option is talking about includes bookmarks, hyperlinks 
for ToC entries and cross-references, and functioning
hypertext commands like links to URLs. When you print to a physical printer, 
none of that data is included in the PostScript because
it's meaningless to the output device. And if the data is not in the 
PostScript, there's no way for the associated links to work in
the PDF. So when you're generating a PostScript file specifically to distill 
into PDF, you need to tell FrameMaker to include the
link data.

Greetings everyone!

 

I created a book containing a large number of hyperlinks, as text. (E.g., 
http://destination.com/). These are not coming through in
PDF as active links. I do need them to look like normal URLs, and also be 
active links in PDF. Would someone be willing to tell me
how to do set these links up to achieve this outcome?

 

Using FM 8, Win 7 x64, Acrobat XI.

 

Thanks very much!

Elchanan
