Only the first line of wrapped URLs works

I have some long URLs in a PDF that are wrapped. When they're clicked, only the first line of them is used as the URL link, not the whole URL. So I get a 404 or the wrong page on the site. Is there a way to make the entire URL be used?

Did you add a Link object yourself, or are you relying on the option to automatically generate links from plain-text URLs?

Anytime there's a very long URL I go to tinyurl.com and convert it into a short URL. This does not solve your problem which are end of the line wraps but either Try67 approach or this will solve your problem

Thanks for you quick response, gary_sc. I've recommended to my client that they try Try67's approach. The document may end up as a paper pamphlet, so I've also recommended that in that case a URL shortening service be used so the reader will find it easier to type the URL into a browser.

Hi Ward,

 

Yes, that's the one big reason why I use the URL shortening services. While the results do not have the mnemonic ease of a basic website, they are sufficiently short that even my dyslexic brain can deal with the results. The combination of the two handles most cases.
