How do you "pdf" it? Not with Adobe Reader; whatever program you use, ask in the forum for that software.
Also, if a doc is embedded, there is no "link" - just an embedded document. How does it "not work"?
you're right...it's not a link, it's an icon, and by "not working" I mean when I click on it in the pdf, it doesn't go to the document - just nothing happens.
To create the PDF, I was in Word, and did "file>save as> pdf" ...perhaps this is Adobe Pro?? Sorry I don't know all the techie words...I'm new at this.
But apparently I'm on the wrong forum - I think I need to discuss this on the Adobe Acrobat Pro forum.
