Topic: PDF loses hyperlink after disabling printing and change

I converted a document from Microsoft Word that contains hyperlinks to PDF. Everything works fine - the links are all active. But when I disabled printing and change in PDF and saved it again, the links are lost. What exactly did I do wrong?

Here is what I did in PDF:
- File -> print, select "Adobe PDF" in printer name, click on Properties
- On "Adobe PDF settings", select "Edit" next to "Adobe PDF security", and entered a password, checked "Use a password to restrict printing and editting ...", left "Enable copying of text ..." unchecked, and "Enable text access for ... visually impaired" checked.
- Click Ok several times and name a destination for the new document.

Now in the PDF doc, the hyperlinks are all gone. I'm using Adobe 7.0.

I searched on the internet but could not find tips on this ... Any help is appreciated!
