Hyperlinks in Word documents to work in PDF

If you want to use one of the free PDF printers or writers that are available hyperlinks does not always convert correctly when the Word document is printed to PDF. Typically this is when they are wrapped on two or more rows or have very long paths.

I've tried CutePDF Writer, Pdf995 and PDFCreator among others and they all had this limitation.

To solve this using CutePDF there is no free solution. You need to buy ($49.95) CutePDF Pro (Commenting -> Link Tool) to add those links back onto created PDF document.

PDF995 had the solution with the Word toolbar addin that comes with pdfEdit995 that also is free.

PDFCreator could not solve this at all.

Both the support for CutePDF and Pdf995 where quick to answer my questions.

    I prefer using PDF-T-Maker which is a Word Marco/Add-in that:

    "Similar to almost any PDF converter, as first step PDF-T-Maker converts your Word document into a PostScript file. You can send this PostScript file through a distiller"

    The distiller can be any free PDF conversion tool like PDFCreator or Ghostscript directly.
