Hyperlinks and Free Text Tool
Posted on 2003-11-24
I have been having a major issue with Acrobat 5.0 and Adobe support has been little help. It all started when certain documents had problems displaying the text boxes that were created with the "Free Text Tool". The text would appear, however it would be a really light shade of whatever color it was. I found I could fix this within the registry but it continues to happen and is a pain. Adobe could not tell me the reason it happens.
Another issue which may be related (which is the reason i put it in the same post) is that hyperlinks seem to be disappearing. I realize that many hyperlink may be invisible but that is not the issue. The hyperlink is simply gone. The one weird thing about this is that when I open the file just by itself it loads fine, but when I open the document by clicking on a hyperlink from another document, it doesn't contain the hyperlinks, nor the text boxes on top of link. This is the only instance that this has happened so far so I don't know if it is related to the previous problem.
Thanks to anyone who has any suggestions.
