If you convert your Word document to PDF using PDFMaker (which will install w/ Acro X Standard) to many versions of Word, hyperlinks will be active in the resulting PDF file.
As Bill said, what version of Acrobat Standard and what version of Office/Word do you have installed?
David - Thank you for your reaponse. I am using The latest Word for Mac, don't have Acrobat - wanted to make sure it would work before I purchased. Who makes PDF Maker, and what is Acro X Standars?

PDFMaker is a Windows-only feature and unfortunately, there is no Acrobat Standard for Mac, only Acrobat Professional.
However, the attached document was authored in Word 2011 for Mac. I converted it to PDF via File > Print > PDF > Save as Adobe PDF (steps outlined here.). The full URL was recognized by Acrobat after the conversion and is live. The second line was a hyperlink setup in Word, but unfortunately was not recognized since that data was not included in the PDF conversion nor is it an obvious link. That said, you could use the 'Link' tool in Acrobat after the conversion to re-create that hyperlink.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
This is all too complicated. I just saved the document as a Word "Read
Only." It's discouraging to me that creating a PDF in Adobe Acrobat with
Windows for Mac doesn't simply preserve all hyperlinks - with the growth of
Macs in the market and popularity of the Microsoft Office suite for Mac,
there will be increasing demand for this.
I agree with and empathize with Todd. I'm converting a Word 2007 doc to Adobe Pro XI on a PC. I even found a setting in Word (Acrobat Preferences-->Bookmarks) I have Convert Word Headings to Bookmarks and Convert Word Bookmarks checked, and have the boxes selected for my headings. The old hyperlinks still work, but I added a few more and re-converted it - the new ones do not work. Anyone else experience this?
