How do I put a link to a website in a form.  I have tried to use the link tool in Acrobat and it is disabled.  I have had to make the links transparent buttons and use javascript to launch the URL, but this is cumbersome and it looks different from the other text on the form.  There must be a way to do this, but I haven't been able to find it.  Thanks.

In LiveCycle 8.0, the only way to do this is to put a transparent button behind the text that is to be the link.  Underline the text so that it looks like a link.  I put the text in the text field instead of on the button.  The text matches the rest of the document.  Still a little cumbersome, but at least the text looks fine.
