pdf fillable form - hyperlink issue

Hello. I am currently creating a fillable pdf form. The idea is that the form will be used as a design brief template for account managers to populate. I have created editable text fields, and tested them by dropping content in. This works fine, until a web address is dropped in (http etc included). I need these web links to appear as clickable hyperlinks and they currently aren't doing that.
Is there a solution to this?

They aren't going to do that. I think you are expecting way too much from a technology designed to replace paper forms.

Use rich text format for the text field and you can add links.

Thanks for the reply.
I have opened the Text Field Properties panel, selected Option and ticked the Allow Rich Text Formatting box.
When I then copy and paste a url into the text box, it just shows up as a series of question marks (in boxes).

All cmd-e seems to do is bring up a small properties panel, and doesnt allow anything to be selected.
Ive taken a screenshot of a selection of the form to show whats happening (see attached).
I have dropped a url into the first field (this field doesnt have Allow Rich Text Formatting selected).
I have dropped a url into the second field (this field does have Allow Rich Text Formatting selected).
Neither of them allow for the urls to become clickable.
