Convert WPS file to Clickable PDF

Recommended Posts

I'm certain somebody referenced a good free tool to use, but I lost it when changing PC's. Need to update some PDF's but DW doesn't recognize any editor when I click on the file.

"Can't find a valid editor"

WPS ?? MS Works?

Can you edit the WPS or convert to DOC? Then WIndows 10 has a PDF printer.

Also check for "open with" in that dialogue using right click. See your options. Maybe your editor was not the last registered to open PDF. How come it did not open Adobe Reader?

And what do you mean clickable? Clickable from File Explorer or clickable from within the PDF.?

Clickable links within PDF. Worked fine a few years back. Some link 'hotspots' have moved for some reason. Mouse over towards bottom. They were all on the underlined blue text.

Open with says ...Dreamweaver or browse. Browse where or for what.:o

Now that I think about it, maybe I should just change it to an html web page and be done with it...easy.

But PDF looks better printed out.

Did that, lost the clickable links. I'll look more the next few days.

Okay. I created another file through your suggestions bobb, then dropped it into my pdf file folder instead of editing or 'open' then uploaded.

Links don't work. Can't edit title tag.

It was probably 2016 when I got help on this before and it worked, but I'll be danged what I used to make it work.

Wait a minute. It did recognize the urls and made them clickable. I suppose I'll do some adjustments.

Yes the links are positioned a bit off on page 2 of SolidInstall.pdf (about 2 lines) and even then the URL (http://) should not be showing.

...and if I may make a suggestion, get rid of underline to highlight words like Jobsite Inspection on gluedown.pdf. It is passé. Bold is enough.
