I'm using Microsoft PowerPoint 2011 to create a presentation, and want to save the document in PDF form. However, when I save the file using Mac's print dialog, hyperlink information is lost in the resulting PDF file. How can I save the presentation as a PDF while still enabling hyperlinks?
You can still save it as a PDF with working links, but there's a slightly different way to do it.
Go to File => Save As...
Next, select "PDF" for the Format dropdown. PDF will be listed under "Common Formats" in the dropdown.
The reason the PDF export from the print dialog doesn't export the links is because the links aren't part of the usual data that would matter when printing, and so such things are stripped out when sent to the PDF "printer".
