    URL Links not working


      I have created URL links in a PDF ebook using acrobat.  The links  work just fine in Acrobat.  When I try to click on the link in ADE 2.0 some of the links aren't recognized, meaning they're not clickable.  Is there a certain setting that should be used in acrobat to ensure that links are clickable in ADE.  It's important that they work in ADE because once DRM is added to the file, it will only be readable in ADE.


      Thanks in advance for any help

          Might be worth checking on the Acrobat forum.


          Also probably worth seeing if they work on v1.7.2 (*2), on Sony Reader(*1), and on ereader devices and tablet ereader apps such as Bluefire.

          It could easily be a bug in ADE2.0, there are very many of them. 

          Lots of people including me still use 1.7.2 for that reason; but you may not have the choice of what to expect your readers to have.




          (*1) you can use Sony Reader; free download from Sony intended to run with Sony eReaders but works quite happily without.  I prefer ADE1.7.2 to Sony Reader. https://ebookstore.sony.com/download/



          (*2) There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0 (and 2.0.1).  Try replacing ADE2.0 with the older but more reliable v1.7.2.

          (You can have them both installed at once if you like.)

          Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.


          The forum software is sometimes corrupting the link above.  There shouldn't be a blank in 'editio ns.html'.  The following redirects to the same page: http://tinyurl.com/diged172



          Some people have found ADE trying to upgrade automatically. 

          It appears (not 100% sure) that if you install ADE2.0 as a new install (not as an upgrade) that your 1.7.2 will continue to run.

          Probably best to say no if 2.0.x installation asks if you want to migrate your library.
