I'm running Office 2003 and Acrobat 5.05. When I use the PDFMaker utility in PowerPoint, not all of the hyperlinks are being converted in the PDF. Some are, but not all.

1. All links were created using the hyperlink tool in PowerPoint
2. The "Convert Internet Links" box is checked under the "Office" tab.
3. I've tried Prep4PDF ( and that resolves the issue, but I'd like to think that there's a solution to this problem without having to but a $90 utility.

At this point my only option appears to be to re-create the links in Acrobat. I'm hoping that someone else has a solution. :)

Are their any other PDF tools, utilities, or PDF replacements that work better in preserving hyperlinks? At this point, I'm open to any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!
