Visio, PDF, and Hyperlinks


Does anyone know if it is possible to create PDF's of Visio drawings which contain Hyperlinks, and have the Hyperlinks work for the PDF generated drawings when I post them on an Web server ? If so, can you point me in the right direction.

Thanks, Jack...

RE: Visio, PDF, and Hyperlinks

If you are printing to the Adobe PDF Printer, hyperlinks are not supported.

You will a full version of Adobe PDF Maker to either print to or to edit the document manually after creation.

There are other PDF programs that can do this also but AFAIK none of them are free either.
