Hi!

I've been going through the message boards and I am not finding my answer.  I have created a form utilizing LiveCycle.  I have made the form so that it can be fillable via Reader Extended PDF.  I need to be able to put a link in a text field that the next user can just click on it, and it will take them to a document in SharePoint for review.  I've tried changing the text field to rich text in LiveCycle, but the steps to add the link in the PDF is too lengthly and not friendly.  Once I finally get it to put the link in, the end user cannot just click on it.  They have to take additional steps.  Someone on the boards mentioned something about putting a button next to the field that will convert the text of the link in the previous text field to a link, but I cannot find those instructions or understandable instructions.  The management wants it to be where you just click on the link.  How do I do this?  I am not a techie, so I need instructions in layman's terms.

PLEASE HELP!

Thank you!

Thanks for your help!  However, that's the problem... it's not being interpreted as a link.  Here is a sample of what I am putting in the PDF form:

http://thehub/sites/Legal/... (I did not put the full link here on the board) 

Also, I don't know what a floating field is.  I've had to teach myself how to use this product, so there is no one for me to ask.

Thanks again!
