Convert word with Hyperlinks (image)

I'm using Word 2010 to convert a doc to pdf.  It has a dozen or so hyperlinks. When I use the "Save and Send" option under the file tab it creates a PDF with the hyperlinks intact for those that are text but not those that are images. What I mean is that if I have a hyperlink goto here... that works fine.

If however I have an image that I make into a hyperlink it works fine in Word but when it gets converted to PDF the image does not function as a hyperlink.

Regards
Lee

I've just tried this in Office 2010, and it works OK.

Rather than Save & Send, try the Save As PDF option, then open that PDF in your PDF viewer - does it work then?

If You Do "Save As" and select PDF (leave the default options) works fine.
Next tyou can attach the file to the email.

Yup - I tried Save As PDF, the link in the image does not work, the rest do!

I even added a new image, to no avail! I'm surprised.

Ah now I see - it's not hyperlinks, rather Bookmarks that are causing the problem.

As it stands, this is currently a known issue in Word 2010. See here:-
