When I export a PDF with hyperlinks, everything works. My question: is there any way to set it up so that when I press on a hyperlink I don't see the outline of the box that is attached to the hyperlink? When I hold my mouse button down, I see a black box, when I release I go to the anchor. Normally, that happens very quickly (mouse click) but I don't like the brief flash of the black box.

 

Is there any way NOT to have it show a black box when triggered? This only happens on the windows version of Acrobat Reader (not on my iMac or iPhone version of Acrobat Reader).

Can you explain what you're doing here? It looks like the hyperlink is showing or hiding a button? Are you sure it's a hyperlink and not a button?

I’m assigning a hyperlink to an invisible box on top of a graphic of a slider button. When I click on it (in the windows version of acrobat reader) it briefly shows a black-filled box where my invisible box once was.

This doesn’t happen on the Mac version of acrobat reader
