I am creating an orientation manual which includes a variety of different hyperlinks and attachments. I have also placed a variety of PDF files into the InDesign document which include their own hyperlinks. Upon exporting (both print PDF and interactive PDF) the InDesign hyperlinks remain intact while the hyperlinks in the placed PDF files are rendered inactive and only the text formatting is retained (color, underline, etc.). Any ideas as to how I would keep those hyperlinks active, or if that's possible?
My reasoning for placing the documents in rather than splicing the documents together in acrobat is because they will likely change in the near future. When they are, i can simply save over the existing files and they will be updated, rather than re-combining the PDFs every time there is a minor change.
Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.
No, any interactivity gets lost, when a PDF is imported. It is like any other image.
Willi is correct. I'm afraid the only way to do it is to "splice" the pages together in Acrobat.
