How do I create a PDF with hyperlinks

Many applications can export PDFs with page-to-page hyperlinks. Check out our list of software that supports PDF output.

The workflow varies, but basically it is:

  • Create a document with multiple pages/slides
  • Create an element (text, graphic) that links to another page
  • Link each page to another, create next/prev buttons, menus, etc.
  • Export to PDF
  • Make sure you check "include hyperlinks" when available
  • Test it in Adobe Reader or OSX Preview
  • Open in Link Viewer
Here is a (very short!) video snippet that shows the workflow (starts at 1:38):
