Hi. We have several PDFs in a document library in SharePoint and many of these PDFs, on the second page, have a table of contents with links to other pages within the same document (like an interactive index).

These links work only when you choose Open -> Open in browser, or when downloaded and opened in any reader such as Acrobat. In SharePoint, the links don´t work when opening the file directly from the online application. The linked areas are showing up within a yellow box when you scroll over them; but when you click on them, nothing happens Can you advise me how to fix this?

Note: The documents were created in Adobe Indesign and exported as interactive PDF. All the links work fine when the document is opened in Acrobat.
