I create Word 2013 documents that contain embedded web links. In Word I set the links to open in new window. Next I save these documents as PDFs. I upload these PDFs to a web server from where users open them inside browser tabs. When any of the web links embedded in the PDFs are clicked, the linked web page opens in the same browser tab in which the PDF displays. What do I need to do to make the embedded web links in my PDFs open in new browser tabs when clicked by users?
I am using Windows 7, Word 2013, Acrobat 11 Pro, Firefox and Chrome browsers.
The "true" part is what tells the browser to open the link in a new window/tab.
If you want to convert all of the links in your file to this kind of link, with the option set to open in a new window, you can use this tool I've developed for that purpose: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Convert all links in a PDF to Open In New Window
