Scribus > PDF Generation

Adding links to a PDF

(1/5) > >>

Ged:
I have exported my document to PDF and viewed it in Adobe Reader.  Looks good.   :)

Now, I would like to create a link in my PDF page before uploading on to the Internet.  Previously I would open the finished PDF in Adobe Acrobat, and add the link there.  However, it would be nice if Scribus could perform that task.  Am I in luck?

Nermander:
Yes, Scribus can do it.

Ged:
I did it as per the Scribus article, but when I tried to upload my pdf document to Academia.edu, I got the following error message:


--- Quote ---Sorry, we couldn't convert your document for embedded viewing.
There are a number of potential reasons for this:

* The document was saved in a format that we can't process (for example, .jpg)
* The document was saved with encryption or password protection
* If we tried to pull it from an external address, the URL may have been malformed or obsolete
--- End quote ---

I will now try to upload it using Acrobat.  If that is successful, we may have to assume that I missed a detail in the Scribus instructions.  Either that or there is a 'bug.'   >:(  I'll let you know how I get on.

Nermander:
Reading on this page (referred to from Academia.edu help pages)

Did you try the links before you uploaded the document?

Ged:
Yep, tried the link and it worked OK.  Checked the academia article, and updated 'Flash' as the article suggested.

One thing else I noticed is that when exporting, Scribus default profile is set to "Postscript."  Ill try it set to "PDF14" instead, and see if it makes a difference.
