NWX 2.7 OS X 10.4.7 PB G4 1.5
Like you, I have found that working links in Nisus did not always translate to working links from the PDF file. I have a work-around.
1. First, for folks who haven't tried hyperlinks: I've found that linking from within NWX document works only if the URL is a FULLY qualified web address. For example, "http://www.google.com
" works but "www.google.com
" does not. The text that is associated with the link can be anything--for example "search google.'
2. But if a nisus document with working links is saved or printed as a PDF file, the links work only if:
a. The file is opened in Adobe Reader (I have v 708). The links won't work in Preview or PDFPen.
b. The TEXT associated with the hyperlink is itself a working URL.
" and "http://www.google.com
" work, but "search google" and "google.com" do not.
For some reason, in the PDF file the hyperlink loses the color and underlining that it had in Nisus.
3. There's more: If you plan to share your document only as a pdf file, you don't need to create a hyperlink in NWX at all. All that is necessary is that you write in a working URL (for example "www.google.com
"). Adobe Reader recognizes these URLs and creates the appropriate hyperlinks. As a bonus, if you color and underline the URL in NWX (with no hyperlink), the PDF hyperlink will retain these attributes.
