How can I send to a different URL link than what the text states in Acrobat?

Aug 20, 2012 1:45 AM

Hi there

I know how to create URL links in my document using Acrobat but

How can I create a link that goes to a different URL desintation other than the one the text states?

 

For example

 

the text states

 

www.aaaaa.com

 

and I want it to state this,

 

but I want the link to direct to

 

www.aaaaa.com/abcdefghijkl

 

?

I dont want to have to create a link object, I want it to stay as text?

 

Is this even possible?

Any advise?

 

Thanks

    Unless you create a link object then of course it's impossible. Text is just text, it can't have any special function.

    Why want you change this? The user needs this information.

    Put the text "Please click this link to goto our website where you can find more information" in your document and add the link over this text.

    Acrobat and Adobe Reader display the destination of a URL link for security reasons. You cannot change that behavior.

    Actually, it is possible to specify your own tooltip text, if you use a

    button instead of a link.

    You just set the button's action to "Open a weblink" and it will act the

    same as a link, but you'll have more control over how it looks and behaves.

    Create a button form field. Under Properties - General you can set the

    tooltip (the field appearing under the field's name).

    Under Properties - Actions, add a Mouse Up triggered-action of the type

    "Open a weblink" and specify the URL to open.

    And you're done...
