    I am the editor of a newsletter for an organization and use Publisher 2016 to create the newsletter and Adobe PDF to distribute to our members. I would like to embed an active icon link that will open within the PDF version. I can make it happen within Publisher, but it doesn't open in the PDF version. Can this be accomplished without having a copy of Adobe Acrobat, but only Adobe Reader? I can't cost justify the price of Adobe Acrobat.

    What program are you using to make this PDF?

    Adobe Reader is just that, a reader.

    As I stated in my query, I use Publisher 2016 and save it s a PDF. I often do this with hyperlinks and thought that maybe it would work for an embedded PDF icon. I am well aware that Reader means just that.

    I am not trying to add a hyperlink. I have added the ones I need and they work in Adobe Reader. What I am trying to do is add a hot PDF icon in Publisher that will also be hot in Adobe Reader like my hyperlinks. The PDF I want to use is not connected to a web page, but is just a single page PDF document.
