Re: Some hyperlinks are not getting linked

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your reply. I wish to point out that I also reported another linking problem with this program in another thread. In Word documents having both footnotes and endnotes, the program is not processing hyperlinks in the endnotes. I sent a sample, and that problem was also verified....

Re: Some hyperlinks are not getting linked

Thanks for that information. I hope the this bug fix, and another one I identified a few days ago (and which Tracker has also verified) can be fixed soon in a "minor 'point' build". The other one is that some end-note URLs are not being linked (see forum at https://forum.tracker-software.com/viewtop...

Some hyperlinks are not getting linked

I am using the current version (7.0.328.2 ). In Word-2007 DOCX documents that I am printing to PDF, most hyperlinks are being converted to links, but some are not. Also, for links that span more than one line of text, the hyperlinked text on the first line is not being included as part of the link (...

That's a different program (not sure which one of Tracker's it is). In the PDF XChange Standard printer driver for making a PDF from within a Word doc, that choice doesn't exist - as shown in this screenshot.
