Iím trying to make create a pdf ebook out of a word document that Iíve put together but Iím having trouble finding a word to pdf converter that will retain my hyperlinks in the content. Before I go paying for one, does any one know of any free pdf converter that will do the job? ;)
Thanks y'all

Create the doc, then 'File' > 'Export as' > 'PDF'

It will then ask what compression for images, if it is big you probably need to be around 75%, however, they do not look so good using that compression, better to compress them with your graphic program 1st.

It does activate the hyperlinks and you can even use anchor text. :)

Hi Remi

I would certainly endorse what mark says, I use open office for all of my word to PDF documents and do not have any problems with losing links

Hi Remi!

I also use Word but with mine, I go to "save file as" and choose the option "save as pdf file". :)
