How do you put links into an ebook?

5 replies
I've written a short ebook and would like to put some affiliate links in it.
I wrote the text in NeoOffice (in document format) and inserted hyperlinks, they worked fine.
Then I converted this document into pdf (using NeoOffice) and the links aren't there anymore, it's just simple text.

Then I put the text into Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional and wanted to create links but I couldn't. I tried to search for info on the internet on how to do this but didn't find any. It should be easy! I see these links in every ebook!

How do I put links into my ebook? (i.e. when somebody clicks on a word, a specific website opens).

    I've got Acrobat 7, and if you go to Advanced > Links you see a dialog for converting text into links. I presume the procedure is similar in Acrobat 8. See the help file for more info.

      Here's an alternative:

      eWriterPro Professional Ebook Creator Software!

      It's called Ewriter Pro (from Ewen Chia)

      This is-- if you can't afford (or have no access) to Adobe PDF Writer.

      That is NOT my affiliate link--and it's only 10 bucks with re-sell rights.

      Hope this helps,

        Then there's the Free way....Use word to write your ebook, the download DoPDF, to print the word doc to a pdf. DoPDF recognizes links, I use it all the time.

    Simple way is to convert it to word document, then it is very easy to insert links.
    If you want to have it in pdf form, pm me.
