    Embedded hyperlinks not working in MS Word 2010 when printed to PDF


    I have been using MS word for over 20 years. I am running Windows 10 with tons of ram and MS Word 2010. There is a fatal problem when printing doc or docx containing hyperlinks to PDF. I tried both Adobe Acrobat 9 and Microsoft PDF printer. This bug occurs in either PDF printer. Hyperlinks work fine in the word doc, either directly named or with a cover name with embedded hyperlink.. The Hyperlinks only work when printed to PDF if the displayed text in Word is the same as the hyperlink text. such as if the display text box is "http://google.com" and the hyperlink box is also "http://google.com". But if the displayed text is different than the url text, such as "search engine" entered in the displayed text box, and the hyperlink box set to "http://google.com", The hyperlink does nothing even if I hover over it. it turns blue but does nothing So, it basically no long supports hyperlinks as they were originally designed to work in the first browser Mosaic.

    Embedded hyperlinks not working in MS Word 2010 when printed to PDF

    I have been using MS word for over 20 years.
    I am running Windows 10 with tons of ram and MS Word 2010.

    There is a fatal problem when printing doc or docx containing hyperlinks to PDF. I tried both Adobe Acrobat 9 and Microsoft PDF printer. This bug occurs in either PDF printer.

    Hyperlinks work fine in the word doc, either directly named or with a cover name with embedded hyperlink..

    The Hyperlinks only work when printed to PDF if the displayed text in Word is the same as the hyperlink text.
    such as if the display text box is "Google" and the hyperlink box is also "Google".

    But if the displayed text is different than the url text, such as
    "search engine" entered in the displayed text box, and
    the hyperlink box set to "Google",
    The hyperlink does nothing even if I hover over it. it turns blue but does nothing
    So, it basically no long supports hyperlinks as they were originally designed to work in the first browser Mosaic.

    "Printed" to pdf?

    Hyperlinks work correctly if you save a Word file as pdf

    Word, SaveAs - formats available


    This is a test of a hyperlink in the PDF file created by saving a Word file as PDF. The link text is Fred but the hyperlink goes, correctly, to TenForums - illustrated here by hovering the cursor over the PDF file's Fred

    Welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.- At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month so I can benefit from Excel's filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.- Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial pages are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    - And note that you can also search TenForums threads [rather than just searching tutorials] in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
    [This is what the search box in the top-right corner of TenForums webpages does automatically]
