There is another way to make these work. You can put a hypertext marker over
the cross reference, and the link will work in the PDF.

Subject: Hyperlinks in Acrobat not present?

Hi, all.

I hope this issue has an obvious answer. Here is the context:

1. I am using FrameMaker 7.2p158 on a Windows PC and Acrobat 7.0.7

2. My FrameMaker book has text insets (relevance will become clear in a

3. I use cross-references to header paragraphs, tables and other sections
of my book.

4. I use the "Save Book as PDF" menu item to generate my PDF file from the
FrameMaker book.

Some of the cross-references automatically result in clickable hyper-links
in the PDF, but some don't!?!

I have not isolated this to the text insets, although that was my initial
reaction to the problem.

Is there any way to force the PDF to contain the links for all such cross-
references? I would *strongly* prefer not to edit the PDF to add them in
manually into the PDF - this file is re-generated from FrameMaker too often
in this document!
