Possible to hide URL's in a PDF document?

 6:30 pm on Feb 16, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hello all..

Was wondering if there's a way to conceal hyperlink URL's in a PDF doc (so when someone hovers over the link nothing is displayed). I was hoping there might be a standalone utility that could do this but I haven't found one yet. FYI I'm using OpenOffice as I can't afford anything else. Thanks...

Not sure why you would even want to do that. All they have to do is type it in anyway.

From an affiliate marketers standpoint, it just looks better when your link is displayed as www.website.com instead of www.website.com/product3654/affiliateID=32585

This is easy to do with HTML, but I can't figure out if it's possible to do this to a PDF document.

Then what you are talking about is not really the link, but the added tracking info.

Don't think there is anyway to do that.
