Can hyperlinks in Acrobat PDF be preserved?

I'm creating an infographic in Illustrator and saving it as a PDF. In Acrobat, I've created several hyperlinks to web pages. After I send the PDF to the client for review and there are changes, I make the changes to the AI file, save as PDF, but the hyperlink info is gone. 

 

Is there any way to keep those hyperlinks active from each revision OR am I at the mercy of Acrobat in needing to create those hyperlinks every time I need to revise the file?

Hi,

 

Could the hyperlinks not be created in Illustrator and then exported to PDF when you create that, that way you would not need to recreate the hyperlinks.

Be sure to work on an .Ai file saved with the "PDF Compatibility" option off.

Be sure to export the PDF file with the "Keep Illustrator features" option off.

Because Ai-PDF hybrid documents are often the cause of such trouble.
