Hyperlinks don't work in fillable pdf forms

I have a question for you folks and am hoping you can help me.  I am using Adobe Acrobat X Professional.  I want to create "fillable" pdf forms which include hyperlinks.  When I create a pdf form and "Save as" a "Reader extended PDF" and "Enable additional features" the hyperlinks don't work.  I save the document this way in order to produce a fill-in pdf document.  However, if I save the document as a regular pdf (i.e., not reader extended/non-fillable pdf form) then the hyperlinks work.  Any ideas how I can get the hyperlinks to work in a fillable pdf form?  Thanks!

    Hi Chris,


    I'm not able to duplicate the issue.  I've created a Reader Extended PDF file and I'm still able to click on links.  How were these links created?  Were they made in Acrobat?

    Is there any chance these links were not created by the link tool but are autorecongized links?
