    I'm trying to place links in a pdf file. The original file was created in Microsoft Word. All my links that have a direct address listed work. When I place my hyperlink to "product" with my affiliate link in the "backround" they don't work?

    I'm a beginner at this stuff, but I thought I can put a "click here" with a link to said product?

    Can someone please clarify?

    Are you trying to put a link overtop of another link? Is that what you mean by the affiliate link in the "background"?

    Actually, I tried a tiny url that redirects to an affiliate link--afilliate.hop.clickbank.net

    Link looks like:

    Product 1

    Product 2

    Except that the links aren't clickable.

    Before that I tried using the actual hoplink but that didn't work either. If I put the address it becomes clickable. I'd prefer not to have to put the go here: http://tinyurl.com/sampleurl1

    Editing in MS Word and publishing to pdf with software called dopdf. Haven't done any editing to the actual pdf file. Didn't know that I could.
