I downloaded cutepdf. I had wrote an ebook on word, when I made it a PDF my links do not work on the PDF. What I'm I doing wrong?

Your not doing anything wrong. Cutepdf doesn't support hyperlinks, you'll need to use something else and it probably won't be free.

I use doPDF. I just tested it with a Word document including an embedded link. It did just fine and the link opened after giving Acrobat permission.

It is easy to use. Open your doc, go to Menu bar - File - Print - choose doPDF as printer - specify output location. Done.

I guess instead of hyperlinks, I have to include the entire url for it to work....

If you really want true PDF files that work like that you are going to have to buy a real PDF editor. So either fork up the money for Adobe Acrobat Pro or a knock off like Fox It PDF editor or creator.

howdy, i happen to do alot of desktop publishing for a newspaper and by far the best (free) pdf maker is primoPDF only drawback is that it requires .net framework. if you can live with that, it is the best that ive used, besides exporting to distiller (which is not free)
