In this post, we will show you three convenient ways to add hyperlinks to a PDF. After reading this post, you will get the knowledge to hyperlink a PDF with or without Adobe Acrobat.

1. Add hyperlinks to a PDF with Adobe Acrobat

Honestly, Adobe Acrobat could be your first choice if you have only a few hyperlinks to add. As a top-ranked global PDF creator, Acrobat could handle every possible task when working with PDF files. Only a few steps are required to add hyperlinks to a PDF.

Step 1. Go to “Edit PDF” -> “Links”.

Step 2. Click “Add Link” and then drag to select the region you hope to insert a link to.

Step 3. Select an action when you click the hyperlink. You can choose “Open a Web Page” and enter the URL you will redirect to.

Step 4. Confirm the settings and save the PDF document. 

Follow the 4 steps and you can add a hyperlink to the PDF successfully. However, if you have multiple hyperlinks to insert, you have to repeat the four steps over and over again. If you have hundreds and even thousands of hyperlinks to add, that would be quite difficult if you have no professional tools.

2. Add hyperlinks to a PDF with MS Word

If you have the original file of your PDF document, it would be easier to add hyperlinks. MS Word is the leading word processor and you can insert links to certain texts or images simply. No need to draw a rectangle and insert a link by adding an action, just like what Adobe Acrobat does.
