Hello--I did the following steps. However, when I copy the link and insert the link into a google doc, it says invalid URL link. How do I create a valid link that can be copied and inserted into a google doc? Thanks. 

  1. Open the file you want to convert in your PDF editor.
  2. Select the Create & Edit button on the right-side toolbar.
  3. Click Export PDF at the top of the window.
  4. Choose HTML Web Page and select your options. Single HTML page will create one web page, no matter how long the PDF. Multiple HTML pages will create several web pages, split up based on the length of your PDF.
  5. Click Export and choose the folder where you want to save your new page.

I suggest uploading the file to a drive, either Google Drive or Adobe Cloud Sto

Let me know if it helps.
