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. $\endgroup$ – Jens Aug 19 '14 at 19:26

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Alexey Popkov Aug 20 '14 at 0:09

    $\begingroup$ The PDF export is still broken. I.E. If you create a document in MMA with links to other places in the same document, using MMA 9, if you export to PDF, these links are PRESERVED. Saving the document using MMA 10 does NOT preserve these links. Yes, they could be created manually in the PDF file, but it was functionality present in v. 9 $\endgroup$ – Tom De Vries Feb 14 '16 at 21:22
