Hi everyone, hoping someone can help! I'm submitting my thesis of 330 pages. It has been carefully formatted in Word for Mac 16.4 with lots of section breaks etc, a table of contents which links to the relevent places in the document, and some important external hyperlinks to a Youtube channel. To avoid the formatting issues with converting a word document to a pdf (I only have Preview) I usually go to Print- PDF- Save as PDF. However, then, all hyperlinks disappear. If I Save As PDF with the Online formatting box ticked, the hyperlinks work, but the document is a nightmare, all out of kilter formatting wise. Can anyone help?
