By "preserved" I mean that opening up the resulting PDF document inside Acrobat Reader and clicking on the link will open up the destination and scroll down and position the resulting document view on that bookmarked location?

When I open up the resulting PDF file in Acrobat Reader DC, and click on the links, the links do not actually open up the destination PDF document at the destination bookmark. They only just open up the destination pdf document to the first page.
