What do you mean by little blue hyperlink arrow?
Are you referring to the hyperlink inspector?


I'm not sure of the name but it is probably the hyper link inspector.  It's on the Inspector window that floats and you can select hyperlink from it.  You can select to make an object link to another slide.  Once you do that, it places a little blue circle with a white arrow to the right of the linked object.  I can send a screenshot this evening if that will help.

Brett,  I believe the link you're referring to is simply the link that shows up if hyperlinks are enabled.  Go to the inspector hyperlink tab and there's a checkbox that says something to the effect of "enable hyperlinks."

The links will work in your quicktime and pdf when you export see screenshots. Make sure you choose the hyperlink option in the quicktime.


Yes - the links work fine.  

Do you see the little blue/white arrow highlighted in your screenshot?  How do I get that into the final PDF?
