Convert DOC to PDF retaining hyperlinks
I am trying to convert a DOC to PDF preserving the embedded hyperlinks. What's the easiest way of doing that?

Office word doesn't work for you? Unsure

Saving a word document as a PDF with Office 2013 preserves the links from my testing. What version are you working with?

I just discovered, that the PDF I am generating contains valid hyperlinks, but I'm using Foxit PDF Reader 5.x and it does NOT show up hyperlinks. Buggy app...

So, is it the app? Or do you still need help with this?

I got it converted to PDF using Foxt Phantom 2.x. It works. But Foxit Reader 5.x sucks. It does not render the hyperlinks clickable.

You are not getting. The PDF reader I was using to test the hyperlinks was buggy. So really can't comment on that.
