I have created a pdf with links to a couple of websites, the links work fine if you open the pdf on a pc but if you open it on an iPhone or iPad the links don't work. I made sure the links have http:// Does anyone know a solution?
How did you create the pdf, and how did you create the links? It might be that the only reason that you can click them on a pc, is that your pc app figured that it's a URI. It might help to explicitly tell the app you create them with it's one. If you did that already, try a different way to create the pdf (another app, or export/convert from another format, et cetera).
you cant guarantee the user will install a plugin other than the apple one apple users, may be neo-luddites about other software 'the client(1*)' may have to go to a user friendly alternative, a html page, or other, to ensure the links are seen as links for whatever reason those with authority decide, they have decided wrongly in this case dependant on any third party addin, will probably fail
- properly written html travels well in email, works in page, in all devices
1* combine equal amounts of impossible, instantaneous, and angry, mix until 20 minutes before deadline, pour into mould, makes 1 client :)
almostbob, it has to be a pdf unfortunately and for once it isn't the client being awkward! It's some external thing where they have asked all the drivers to submit pdf's. I think for now he and I will accept it as a limitation and hope most people open it on a comp and not a phone! Thanks for your help
on the page with the pdf, perhaps a link to download the functioning app? like those that link to acrobat reader where they have a pdf for pcs
That would be lovely if I had control over the page but I don't unfortunately. I can do that for my client's own website but the pdf's have been requested by another site. It's a site about racing, my client is just one of the drivers featured on there, I can't dictate anything.
