    First post here so be gentle :D

    I have a few questions which I know Adobe Acrobat Pro can accomplish simply, although ideally I don't wish to spend hundreds of pounds on the software.

    I have created an online brochure in PDF format and I wish to insert hyperlinks within the PDF to various sections of the brochures website. As I say, Acrobat Pro can do this simply as I've used it before although I was wondering if there is any other PDF software capable of doing such a task?

    My second question is regarding allowing PDF commenting. It seems when I create the PDF (From InDesign), commenting is disabled. Can I not create the PDF from InDesign with commenting allowed?

    i don't know how you created your brochure, but according to this old forum post, OpenOffice.org 2 (and later versions) can create PDFs with embedded hyperlinks, commenting enabled, security, and anything else you might want, using its built-in PDF creation functionality (NOT the built-in to Mac OS X print to PDF feature).

    Thanks for the reply.

    The PDF was generated using InDesign CS4. Having perused a little more it doesn't look like it's possible from InDesign :(
