I have a notebook containing hyperlinks, but when I save it in pdf format (print to PDF) the hyperlinks are not blue and not clickable.

According to Hyperlinks not preserved when saving in PDF format in MMA V10 hyperlinks worked in version 7,8,9, did not work in version 10, but then worked again in version 11.

Now with version 13, the hyperlinks do not work, when I use wolframcloud.com which probably uses the latest version 13.x.

If I use my local installation of Matehamtica 13.0.0 on Fedora 36 does also not support hyperlinks in pdf, but this installation suffers from much worse problems regarding pdf support(Pdf export is heavily flawed for simplest possible notebook such as a=b+c).

Is there any workaround or fix for this problem?

Edit: My problem differs from Hyperlinks not preserved when saving in PDF format in MMA V10, in the sense that I do not experience any problems with the Hyperlink-command. I only face this problem with the automatic hyperlink creation in plain text:

In the .nb-notebook: both hyperlinks are clickable and blue. (The first one is automatically created because an url appears in the plain text) enter image description here

In the printed PDF only "Wolfram Research, Inc" generated with the Hyperlink-command is clickable. In the plain text nothing is blue or clickable: enter image description here

How do I get hyperlinked urls in plaintext to work in the pdf export?

  • $\begingroup$ If you used Hyperlink, was the second argument wrapped in URL? If not, that might explain the behavior you are seeing. Otherwise, I did not experience any issues with exporting hyperlinks. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You are right the command Hyperlink works. But if I add a url such as http://www.wolfram.com as plain text. Then this automatically gets turned into a hyperlink within the .nb notebook, but when I save it as pdf, it is not hyperlinked in the PDF. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You should add the cell expression for that cell to this question. $\endgroup$
