Hi Paolo,

Word for Mac cannot do this, either. Not that many Nisus users would care, but I just thought I should point this out, with Word being the most widely used word processor on the Mac.

That being said, I can clearly understand your point, and I would like to add my voice to the chorus; this is definitely a feature that I would consider essential to any modern word processor.

Thank you for keeping this subject alive. It is a feature that we are seriously considering adding to Nisus Writer Pro.

Oh, I have been forgetting this thread until today. URL links — not bookmarks — do work in PDFs created in Snow Leopard. A new feature of Apple’s PDF generator, it seems.

No blue colour, no underline added by the PDF generator. They look normal text in Preview, Adobe Reader, etc. So you’d better create a character style for links. Here’s a NWP macro — not working in NW Express, sorry — which selects all links so that you can apply such a style easily.

Code: Select all

 $doc = Document.active
if $doc == undefined
	exit
end

$sels = Array.new
foreach $text in $doc.allTexts
	$i = 0
	while $i < $text.length
		$attr = $text.displayAttributesAtIndex $i
		$range = $text.rangeOfDisplayAttributesAtIndex $i
		if Defined $attr.link
			$sel = TextSelection.new $text, $range
			$sels.appendValue $sel
		end
		$i = $range.bound
	end
end

if ! $sels.count
	exit 'No link found, exiting...'
end

$doc.setSelections $sels

Drag and drop the image from the Mail message window on to the Desktop.
A file of the image will appear on the Desktop.

By the way, to resolve the primary issue of this thread started long ago by disfasia

…to which, I replied in June of 2010:

You can consider this issue resolved positively. We now save hyperlinks when creating a PDF. This includes internal links between the:
  • table of contents listing and its marked text
    index listing and its marked text, as well as
    bookmarks and cross-references if you click the checkbox: Hyperlink to target when saved as PDF. in the Cross Reference dialog.


Thank you all for your patience while we implemented this feature.
