Embedded active links from .docx to .pdf
Now all links in Word are lost in the .pdf.
We need active: TOC, Footnotes, Endnotes, Cross-references, Internal links, etc.
This is a must feature.

2018: the problem hasn't been fixed yet. They close it for voting. :(
By the way, thanks for the tip, Jasper!!! I'll start to use Pages to bypass the problem! :)
Hi, the original request is marked as 'COMPLETED' [Jun 8 2017]. Today is Aug 6 2017 and I am still losing web links when .docx → .pdf. (and .xlxs → .pdf).
What am I missing here? I'm using v 15.33.
Tip for fellow users: Open your .docx file in Pages and export to PDF. Links are retained.
Please add URI Links which works now in Word 16 for Mac, to open another App like: [application]://[action]/[item];[field]?[Query]
Please add the active Table of Content from Word
Please add links to Cross-references
Please add internal links
Please add links to Footnotes and back
Please add links to Endnotes and back
Please add link to Textmarks
definitely need this asap
Absolutely a MUST HAVE. I have to transfer my work to coworkers who have Dell laptops for them to convert files to PDF. They then have to transfer them back
Very much a must. I completely agree.
The need to upload for "online conversion" is ridiculous. In my case this so-called "online solution" is also prohibited by confidentiality clauses in several of my contracts.
It is truly unbelievable that this issue hasn't been fixed. /Yes/, there's now the option to convert the PDF as "Best for electronic distribution," but this messes up formatting (e.g., changes font, moves thing) and makes images look like garbage. I have gone back to using Word 2011 because of this... unacceptable.
Integration of hyperlinks in PDF is a MUST HAVE in 2016. In fact, the whole PDF export should be enhanced.
FIST : It shouldn't use the built-in pdf printer. Why ? Because it is based on the printer installed on your computer, and ads margins on your documents. So, if you've done a wonderful commercial document created to be only shared by PDF, well you're f*cked, your document is destroyed by your margins. And then you have to use the print button, select A4-without margin, choose export as pdf in the printing menu... This is really a "long" process...
SECOND : When you create a very long document for the university, your research supervisor asks you to have hyperlinks in your PDF. So you have to find a windows computer, export the file... This really not acceptable.
THIRD : It shouldn't just include hyperlinks in pdf, it should also create the T.O.C. in the pdf. So when you open the left tab in your pdf reader, you can jump directly an other chapter.
THAT would sound 2016 :) And you should put all your intelligence to think "how can we enhance pdfs in 2016 ? What can we add the would become so useful people couldn't live without it ?"
