I want to publicise a conference on our website, by including a link to a PDF. This will contain full details of the conference, together with email addresses of the organisers. I understand that there is a problem with spam producers who automatically pick up email addresses from websites and links contained in them, but that this only works if the email address is formatted as a hyperlink. We therefore need to remove the hyperlink properties from the email addresses. You can do this in Word 2007 by right hand clicking on the email address and selecting "remove hyperlink". However when you "Save as" in PDF format, the hyperlink properties of the email address are restored. What can I do to remove the hyperlink in the PDF?
