I placed dozens of hyperlinks in a document, checking each one before I pasted them into the hyperlink URL window for each link. They all work fine from either Word or just pasting them into a browser. However, half of them give me a "Page Not Found" message when I click on them from my hyperlinked PDF. Note that these URLs have the % symbol at the end to direct to a specific spot on the page (such as content at the end of a page, so the viewer does not have to scroll). Is that the reason they don't work? Again, they work just fine if they are clicked on anywhere else but not from my PDF. Any ideas? Thanks so much for the help!!
Very odd. As I click them all now, they are # symbols instead of the %. Oddly, the % symbols worked outside of Acrobat still, but now they are coming up as #. That must be my problem. Oh, and it would end with the % and then some letters or something to direct it to the page, not just % at the very end. I worded that incorrectly. Thanks!
# is good. But look at what you think are %, and you will probably find there is a 3 character sequence like %21 or %AD. These three characters substitute for a single character in a URL, and are often needed. For example a URL must not contain a space, but it can contain %20, which means space.
