    Hi Jenreber and reszymans,

    You can add links to your PDF documents by using Foxit PhantomPDF or Foxit Reader. Please go to 'Edit'->'Links'->'Rectangle Link'->then add hyperlink or action to your document. This 'Create Link' feature includes five destinations: 1) Go to a page view; 2) Go to a named position; 3) Open/execute a file; 4) Open a web page; 5) Others (use action property page). You can choose the action you want, take 'Go to a page view' as an example, you select this option then browse the the page you want, click on 'Set this position'.

        Yes, I'm afraid, but if you have an original Word copy of the document, you can simply convert the Word document to PDF document with clickable TOC by clicking on the 'Create PDF' buttion in Word.

            Dear Dhens_82,

            Firstly,please make sure that you have disabled the "Enable safe reading mode" under "Trust manager"dab in preferences dialog box.You may open the "preferences"dialog box by clicking ong"FILE"menu>"Preferences".
            And then please click on "HOME"menu>"Hand"to make the hand tool selected. Finally,please try to click on one hyperlink in PDF file.
            It must be mentioned that if the link you click on is a really hyperlink,you will find that your mouse cursor will change into a palm with index finger held vertically.
            You may also try to check whether a link is a hyperlink or not by clicking on"HOME"menu>"Select annotation">right click on link in PDF file,choose"properties"option in the pop-up context menu. There would be a "link properties"dialog box appear if the link you click on is a real hyperlink.

                Foxit Links

                When I converted from Word, some of the links didn’t come over to PDF successfully. So I, first need to remove (undo) the ones that didn’t work, and then redo them.
                I see Remove all links, but I only need to fix a few; not all.
                Can someone explain how to remove those that didn’t work and redo them?

                  You can just add new links to cover the ones that did not work so they will be clickable.
