How to preserve hyperlinks in PageMaker for PDF

One of our users creates a document in Adobe PageMaker.  This document is hundreds of pages long and has more than that many hyperlinks to webpages and e-mail addresses.  When she saves it/converts it to PDF, none of the links are active.  When the PDF is opened (with Adobe Reader), the links act as regular text.  What is the proper/best way to make the document have the hyperlinks?  Is the problem being made in PageMaker or is it in the finished PDF when opened by Reader?  And is there a way to make the changes GLOBAL so that not every link needs to be "touched" one at a time?
