Since MS Word does not seem to provide hyperlinks in the Footer portion of the pages, I need to add the Hyperlinks to the footer of every page of my PDF document.  I figured out how to add a link to the footer of one page at a time by using the Links tool.  This allows me to draw a rectangle around the portion of text that is to contain a hyperlink. In my case, I just drew a rectangle around the entire footer and assigned it a link.

What I'd like to know is how to do this for all 62 pages in batch mode of some sort?  Or, how to copy and paste the portion that I just created as a link.

What do you mean you can't have a hyperlink in the footer on Word?

View -> Header and Footer
Click the Footer
Insert -> Hyperlink.

Works fine for me.

I can insert the Hyperlink, but it is only active when "Viewing" the footer.  As soon as you switch back to the regular document, the hyperlink does not work.  Generally, I have to select the CTRL key and click on a hyperlink in the main body text to open the link in a browser.  That does not work for hyperlinks in the footer.

That is why I posted this question for the PDF, since my ultimate goal is to create the links in the footer of the PDF pages.  I can add the links on each page one at a time, but that will be tedious for 62 pages, especially when I modify the Word doc and generate a new PDF file.

I have to use the explicit URL in the Footer of the MS Word Document.

This Works:

The Hyperlink Anchor Text does not:
