    Using MS Word (Office 2011), I added a hyperlink (to a .PPTX in Dropbox). Saved the document as a PDF (Adobe Acrobat X Pro v 10.1.6). Opened the PDF and the hyperlink doesn't work. This seems to be a well documented problem (with no apparent solution) so I edited the hyperlink in the PDF - easy enough. The hyperlink now opens in Firefox and IE, but not in Safari or Chrome. BTW, I'm running OS X 10.8.2
    Any ideas on how to get the hyperlinks to open in these other browsers?
    Thanks

    Not really sure what you're trying to accomplish here. If it doesn't open in a user's default browser (my guess is that your spreading this around to a few people), the OS will ask how someone wants to open the link. Not really a big problem.

    I guess that I don't understand why the link will work on some browsers and will not work on others - the "bad" link works to the extent that it takes you to dropbox and you get an error message. Sorry if my description is amateurish - my ignorance....
