Topic: Want to add underlines to current links in a .pdf.

When I convert my FrameMaker files to a .pdf, the hyperlinks are still there but are not underlined. I'd like for them to appear as underlined hyperlinks.

I've tried the link tool method but it put a box around the text which is not what I want. I don't need to relink anything - the links are already there. I just want to add color underlines to each current link.

Is this possible?
I've managed to add an underline, but it somehow breaks the link so that it no longer works.
If I can't do this in the .pdf, what can I do on the FrameMaker end to make sure that the links are underlined in the .pdf?
UPDATE: OK, I figured out how to create the underlines and make them work correctly, but I have to do it manually-one-by-one. This is a 500 page .pdf. Any ideas?
Thanks all.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
