I wrote it in Microsoft Word (the old version) and made certain words link to websites. I got everything good to go in Word, but then had to figure out how to change it to a PDF file.
I heard many people say that Open Office can export docs as pdfs, so I downloaded that. It did change my doc to a pdf quickly, BUT it made it look weird for some reason. Instead of the nice header and footer with page info, etc, it just made a big black ugly box. So that didn't work...
Then I downloaded PDF995 and the supporting software. That allowed me to save my doc as a pdf, and the header and footers looked good. But then I noticed that the links weren't working.
The only links in the whole pdf were ones that had a full website listing, such as www.warriorforum.com. There were certain places I added a hyperlink to a certain word in MS Word (anchor text, basically), but in the pdf those links don't show up. The words show up a different color as if they were links, but they are not links.
This is kind of frustrating. What is everyone else using to make pdfs and create links in them? I have read many ebooks and they all have clickable links that do not include www or .com. How should I do this?
Using the PDFedit995, I found an option where I can change all of a certain word to a certain link. But I use the word "Clickbank" about 20 times in the ebook, and I don't want EVERY time I say that word for it to be a link.
Anybody have any ideas? I will keep doing research and trying to figure this out, but any help to speed things up would be greatly appreciated.
