I capture a lot of material for school with embedded links for reference material.   Is that something that is an option to have links work?

Links are separate items that are applied as a separate attribute to an image in the source and target locations.  They are not an inherent part of the image itself.

If your sources is a web page, you could expose the URL by turning on Capture Information effect, copying the URL from the browser address bar and applying it as custom text, as shown below, but the URL is not linked and is therefore not clickable

If the source is not a webpage you could use the same technique to cite the source

Or perhaps I have misunderstood your question?

Clickable links for URLs and embeded links would be extremely valuable!

I think my purpose is maybe misunderstood.  For forensic purposes; to document what was included on a web page at a specific time, capturing the embedded URL and including it with each link on a produced PDF of the web page is perfect.  As I mentioned version's up to version 12 did this, and of course Adobe Acrobat provides this.  The feature is greatly missed as snagit can no longer be used in this capicity leaving hundreds, if not thousands,  of expert witnesses without an easy way to document what was on a web page.
