Hi, I printed my map to PDF. I had attached a link to one of the boxes. The link can no longer be opened in PDF. Any solution ? thanks Pat

    Hi @Patricia Gyurko and welcome to the community 👋🙂

    There is unfortunately no feature, that makes integrated links clickable in printed documents. If you want to have the ability to click on links in a PDF file, you can do that in a corresponding software.

    I would make the text editable in a software like Adobe Acrobat or similar ones, that are available for free, and then I would mark a desired text, that should include a link. Or I would insert a separate link via this software in the document.

    You may have a look at this post too.

    Best, Jörg
