2. link which is created automatically in acrobat - the link is applied automatically not only for the hyperlink but also continuous text. ex: Closing parenthesis. how to prevent this scenario without disable the auto link generate option in acrobat.

You have to create each link manually, and then the automatic link generation should not happen.

Hi Test Screen Name,

 

When i open a PDF in acrobat then the link is generated automatically without any action i have done in pdf. Is this possible to try your side and show me the screen shot with mouse pointer pointing at Closing parenthesis character ")" and get it clear if anything i have missed.

 

Thanks,

Ramu

I guess if there are any areas of the page outside your manual links, they will be the subject of automatic links. You cannot turn this off. Each PDF viewer will make its own automatic links, they are not saved in the file.

Hmm, you can of course create your manual link from the area including the parenthesis, to the correct URL.

Hi Test Screen Name,

 

You got the point. So this is limitation of the automatic link in Acrobat. I will create the manual link including parenthesis and its fine for now.

 

As of now this is temporary work arround only and is there any fixing available in Adobe to overcome this issue permanently through automatic link. Thansk for your help.

 

Brend Alheit, Also thanks for your help. And is ther any fixing available in Adobe to overcome this issue permanently through automatic link.

 

Thanks,

Ramu

Automatic linking happens for each person. So, if Adobe made a fix today and you installed it, there would still be millions of people running the old app, who would still see the problem. I feel it is better not to assume any fix will help, and to make manual links instead.
