Adding Hyperlinks to a pdf form

Avatar

Level 5

Good Day All;

Ok... this is driving me crazy. I have looked through the web to try to find a way to add a hyperlink. Can not find a thing. One would think this would be easy!

Does anyone know how to add a hyperlink (let's say to an other document) to a pdf form?

Thansk all.

You could try using a button for the hyperlink and then alter the colors so it is completely invisible except for the label.  It's kind of a workaround, but if you really don't have the ability to add a hyperlink, it may save you any further concussions.

Hope this helps!

Add a Text object, highlight/select the text in the Text object instance, go to the toolbar and Insert > Hyperlink.

Thanks Steve;

I wish it was that easy. I am running LiveCycle 8. There is no "add hyperlink" in the insert tab or anyother tab. There is just about everything else.  I have also tried to add XML code and that did not seem to work.

I'm running LCD 8 too.

The Hyperlink Command can be found on the Insert Menu, third from the bottom. I missed it myself at first.

Good Luck

Ok... I think I will bang my head. This is what I have on the menu >Insert>(dropdown) from the bottom up when I have highlighted at text object.

I am using LiveCycle as part of Adobe Professional 8. Does this make a difference?

Back to banging head...... Wait... It's a beer

Hi Chomp,

I'm using Acrobat Professional 9 and with that came LiveCycle Designer ES, Version 8.2.1.4029.1.523496

I'm guessing that the version variance might account for the difference.
