Bug introduced in 10.0 or earlier and fixed in 11.0.0

I usually create my course contracts in Mathematica and then save them in PDF format. The notebooks include hyperlinks and these have transferred to PDF without problem over the last several versions of Mathematica (at lease 7, 8 an 9). Is there something different that I need to do in version 10 in order to preserve hyperlinks?

I tried SetOptions[$FrontEndSession, PrintingStyleEnvironment -> "Working"]. But this only changed font sizes.

    $\begingroup$ I think you should file a bug report at wolfram support. I do see the same issue here on OS X. On a Mac, you can use the built-in TextEdit to add hyperlinks using Apple-K. That's perhaps a workaround: copy the Mathematica document as plain text and add the links in TextEdit. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I confirm this bug in v.10.0.0 under Win7 x64. Export["test.pdf",Hyperlink["Wolfram Research, Inc.", "http://www.wolfram.com"]] produces a file without the hyperlink while in v.8.0.4 it gives a file with the hyperlink. $\endgroup$ Aug 20, 2014 at 0:09

1 Answer 1


Dans Mathematica 10, vous pouvez utiliser la fonction Export pour enregistrer votre notebook en format PDF avec des hyperliens préservés. Vous pouvez également utiliser les options suivantes pour contrôler la préservation des hyperliens :


Export["document.pdf", "nb", "Hyperlinks" -> True, "Background" -> None]

"Hyperlinks" -> True permet de préserver les hyperliens dans le document PDF. "Background" -> None permet de ne pas inclure de fond blanc dans le document PDF. Cela peut être utile si vous souhaitez conserver la transparence dans le document.

    $\begingroup$ Although I think your answer is reasonable usually most answers and questions are in English here. It seems also that the behaviour has been fixed in more recent versions of Mathematica $\endgroup$
