I know that Snagit does a good job of converting my PageMaker 7.0 PMD files to PDFs. My question is "Can it also add active hyperlinks to the resulting PDFs?"

Hi Frank,
You cannot add links when saving as a PDF from Snagit. You have to do that as a separate task from within Adobe Acrobat.

They have made that process pretty simple. Just:
  1. Open your PDF document in Adobe.
  2. From “Tools”, click on “Edit PDF”.
  3. Locate the word or sentence you want to have the hyperlink attached to and select it.
  4. Right-click on the text and choose Create Link. Then add the desired hyperlink text.
I hope this helps.

Unfortunately my Acrobat is an older version and doesn't have such "modern" tools. I was hoping that buying Snagit, with its easy-peasy PDF creation, would be a better deal than buying the latest, modern Acrobat. Just as long as I can add hyperlinks to certain texts in the PDF, y'know?
