Hyperlinks aren't working

When converting to PDF, documents with hyperlinks are not working. Only visible URL's are working.

When will this be fixed?


this is on the list of known issues which you can find in the release notes. This is techincally impossible. As PDFCreator works as virtual printer, the application only passes information a printer can handle, like print the words "click here" underlined in blue at that position. The URL is not passed here at all, so we will never be able to find out where the link would have pointed to.

If the URL is written as text, we can detect that and try to convert it into a link. This can fail though, if there is a line break or something like that.

kind regards,
