I have Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, version 11.0.17. I opened the Excel file using Pro, saved as PDF and the hyperlinks did not work.
Anyone have any idea on this???? Hyperlinks do not link over when I convert an excel file to a PDF using Acrobat Pro or DC. This is very annoying.
Please try to create the PDF from Acrobat Pro XI application.
Open the Acrobat application and go to File menu > Create > PDF from file.
Then select the file and check if you still experience the issue.
Let us know how it goes.
Same problem still exists. Any other ideas?
Problem still exists. Any other ideas?
As you have mentioned that the problem still exists, please check if the following option is checked or not:
-Open the Excel file and go to Acrobat ribbon in the Menu bar at the top.
-Then click on Preferences in the bar below the Menu bar.
- In Acrobat PDF Maker window, go to Security tab and check the box (if not checked already) for "Add links" under the Application settings.
-Click OK at the bottom of that window to save the settings.
-Then click on Create PDF and check if you get the hyperlinks working in new PDF file.
Also, check the preferences in the Adobe Acrobat application.
Assuming you are on Windows:
- Launch Adobe Acrobat on your system and go to Edit menu > Preferences > Convert to PDF.
-At right side of the preferences window, select "Microsoft Office Excel" from the list under "Converting to PDF".
-Then click on "Edit settings" tab.
-In Adobe PDF settings for supporting documents window, check the box for "Add links to Adobe PDF file" and click OK.
-Then click OK at the bottom of the preferences window to save the settings.
Check if this helps.
Try to create PDF from the Acrobat application directly, by going to File menu > Create > PDF from file.
Let us know if you still experience the issue.
