Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 167122

I am trying to convert a Powerpoint presentation (Office Pro 2003, windows xp) to a PDF file (Adobe Acrobat Pro 8). Since i want my pdf document to have 4 slides/page, I use the Files > Print menu, then set the correct parameters for my document > then choose the Adobe printer and go. The document is automatically created in my Acrobat Pro, but none of the weblinks work. I have hundreds of them in my document so i don't want to modify then one by one. I tried other conversion procedures and options from MS Powerpoint but in the resulting documents, the links never work. Is there anything I can do?

thank you,

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
