Create hyperlinks for mailing addresses to open a map for directions

How do I add a link to an address (a mailing address like 123 Main Street, Springfield, MA 12345) so that when I open the PDF in Acrobat, it has a contextual link so I can see the location on a map?

 

If you have an address in a PDF  (in this case, a PDF exported from InDesign), when you open that PDF in Preview on a MAC, each address has a contextual link highlight with an arrow, and if you click it, it opens a preview of that address on a map (Maps). When you open that same PDF in Acrobat, no links appear on the addresses.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

@Milkrow  Thank you for reaching out to us. You may set the address text box and the map preview as buttons, then use Show/Hide Buttons and Forms to make them appear. You can add a dual action to the map preview to link out to the Google Map on the web. For more details, please watch this video.

Vivek
