Wow, what a horrendous thing to register on this site and get a screen name you know no one else has.
On topic, I have this PDF my friend gave me of a book, this book has all these links, I assume in an epub format they link to a glossary or something, I'm not sure, how can I remove them? I'm on Acrobat 9 Pro and I can't find any option to get rid of them and google has been of approximately zero assistance.
Thank You in advance, and God bless you for dealing with a truly terrible registration section.
If the underline is a part of the actual running text of the PDF, then you
can't remove it using all of these methods.
You need to remove it from the original file, and then re-create the PDF.
Agreed. Didn't notice the subject line and thought he just didn't want an active link in the document.
The best I can come up with other than editing the original document that the PDF was created from is to select the link with the touchup text tool and change the color. You cannot get rid of the undeline that way and you must have the font being used installed on your computer though.
Not always possible - if the PDF was printed from another application the document properties (File>Properties or Ctrl-D) might show the original name of the file, but in most cases the author will have changed it to a document title. PDFs don't store an internal record of exactly where they came from for obvious privacy reasons. Blue underlined links are most commonly the result of printing from a website or from Microsoft Word, but not in every case.
If it's a book, presumably it's easy to identify who wrote it?
Well, yes, but that doesn't help...I guess this was converted from an epub and the epub had some kind of internal glossary linking crap in it, oh well, I won't be reading it then, thanks for all the help everyone.
