Topic: Cannot get hyperlinks to work in Acrobat

Long story short,
My document has to have images in it and hyperlinks that do not become corrupted!

The doc begins as an .rtfd (.rtf with images) created in TextEdit.
It seems like it has to be saved in PDF first, so i do that using command + P on the Mac. If I try to just drop the .rtdf file into Acrobat, I get a -1409 error message (is that normal?)

To get the hyperlinks to work, so far:

I can save the .rtf text document into html format and it will open in Acrobat just fine with fully functioning links. However, this does me no good since I also need images in the doc, and Textedit will only save it in .rtdf.

So then I save it in PDF format and the hyperlinks in the doc become corrupted when I open the PDF in Acrobat... I think that's what happens, but I am not sure.

Also, the links become discolored and then I have no more blue hyperlinks... ; (

"Link Tool" I looked into, but it is not even remotely related to what I am doing.

Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong?

Thank you.
