Really, you can get the job done quicklyThere is a free app for Windows called PDF Link Editor that does exactly what its name would suggest. But in this case, the “what” is almost less important than the “how,” in that when you load in a file, the program quickly identifies links and allows you to replace them, either one at a time or as a batch.And, if you want to add links, you can. Just set the anchor, which the app will identify before adding your URL throughout the file. You can also use it to clear or extract links if that’s what you need to do. While PDF Link Editor works well with all versions of Adobe PDF, it will function on its own without any Adobe plugin installed.
In summary, here’s how PDF Link Editor helps:
- You no longer have to go through an entire .pdf file, word by word, line by line, to find links.
- Upon finding links, you can replace them individually or, if you want, all at once in a batch.
- Removing links is no sweat, either individually or in a batch.
- Adding links is as simple as setting an anchor and letting the app do the work from there.
- Extracting links can also be done, both individually or in a batch.
