Recently upgraded from Acrobat Pro X to Acrobat Pro 2017.
I DO have “Add Links” enabled in Adobe Preference.
When creating a PDF from an Excel 2019 file with Hyperlinks in Merged cells, NONE of them work in the resulting PDF.??
Through extensive trial & error I’ve found that hyperlinks in NON-merged cell do work in the resulting PDF. This is a problem for me as I regularly use Merged-Cell headings with hyperlinks in my spread sheets. The all function fine in Excel, but no merged cell with hyperlink works in the resulting PDF.
I’ve found a PITA workaround which involved unmerging the cells, placing the Hyperlinked text in a heading cell approximately centered of column’s covered, then removing all cell borders withing that area, selecting all cells required, placing a border around them, THEN Hyperlinking ONLY the cell with the text in it. This works when the PDF is created, but required a good bit of fiddling with the subordinate column widths to place the (hyperlinked) header text in the approximate center above them.
This, as stated above it a time-consuming PITA to do!
Is there NO way to get Acrobat 2017 to correctly activate Hyperlinks from an Excel file with Hyperlinked Merged Cells?
