    Check Boxes and Multimedia


      I am trying to build an interactive PDF.


      The PDF includes check boxes, hyperlinks and text fields.


      When I export the file the following works in Mac's Preview


      1. check boxes

      2. text fields


      In Adobe Acrobat the following works


      1. text fields

      2. hyperlinks



      I have had hyperlinks working in Mac's Preview before, so I am a little confused as to what is going on.


      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

          How did you build the hyperlink, ... exactly? What export setting did you use?

            The check boxes work in both now readers now.


            I exported using ADOBE PDF interactive, which I have used before.


            I built the hyperlinks by converting objects to buttons and adding a URL - which has exported fine before and worked in mac preview.


            This would be my preferred method however I have found a way of doing it so links works in Preview - just writing a shortened URL..... doesn't look as nice but I suppose it all goes to make a turd.



            I just cant seem to get hyperlinks and buttons working in Mac Preview.
