Add "payPal" features to PDF?

Post by Peter2 » Mon Oct 19, 2015 12:17 pm

You know the "Buy now - button" on many websites, created by/for PayPal - a HTML-code with "input", "form", "img" .....

Is there a way to create something like this with PDF Editor? A stamp which runs like an image with hyperlinks? Or something else?

Thanks

Hmmmmh - semi solved :(

Mr.Murphy said to me: "Try it in a PDF, made by a scanner."

And Mr. Murphy was right (of course) - in scanned PDF the function for Links is deactivated....
Why?

I tried it in another PDF where I could define an area behind a stamp with a (Hyper)Link. So here is the next question: Is it possible to define stamp with already integrated links?

Hello Peter.

Thank you for the post.
Is it possible to define stamp with already integrated links?
Unfortunately, because of the way the PDF format works, it is actually not possible to have stamp annotations embedded with links. Doing so would violate the ISO for standardization which defines the rules of PDF.

I do apologize, that we could not be of more help!
