Duplicating links in Acrobat

Is there any way that you can duplicate links in a pdf document, in the same way as form fields or buttons?


I'm creating a navigable pdf for multiple outputs, eg PC and iPad. I need to add links to a navigation bar so the user can jump to different sections of my document. Normally this could be done as form fields which are then duplicated throughput. However, a pdf read on the iPad through iBooks or GoodReader does not work with form fields, so I'm having to copy and paste and reposition on each page, which is tedious!

    Yep - switch to the Select Object tool or the Link tool so you can select the link's rectangle, then copy/paste as normal (via the menu or ctrl-C/V)
