Please see attachment for the example of the issue I'm encountering.  How can I turn the hyperlinks off completely before exporting a website as a PDF?  I've tried this with Chrome, OneNote, Internet Explorer, and Acrobat but all come out with the same results which makes me sense that this has something to do with the manufacturers website as I also tested the export on a Mac in Safari.

I did notice that when the PDF is opened, it looks fine.  But the moment the top portion of the first page is clicked on, all the hyperlinks appear.

I think it's a problem with the website's code. Even using the Print button on the site (lower right) doesn't work. I also tried it with Firefox and Opera...same bad results, so I'm pretty sure it's the website that's the problem. Best way to get a clean PDF is via screen capture. I did that, made it a JPG first, then converted it to a PDF. Both files are attached for you. Regards, Joe
