PDF conversion failure and truncated hyperlinks after PDF conversion

Q: PDF conversion failure and truncated hyperlinks after PDF conversion

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor, 2 GB RAM and Windows XP/Pro SP 2, InDesign CS3 (v. 5.0.1), and Word 2002 SP 3.

Problem description:

a) I have tried converting InDesign documents and Word documents with long hyperlinks to PDF. I have documents with some hyperlinks that are very long and require more than one line. The hyperlinks that I create in InDesign or Word that require more than one line look OK after conversion to PDF (using the Export command in InDesign), but, if I hover the mouse over the link in the PDF, all the characters in the URL on the second line are missing, and the link doesn’t work. I first discovered this using Acrobat Professional 7. Yesterday I downloaded a trial version of Acrobat Professional 8 (8.1.0), and I still have the problem.

Yes, I know I can create a hyperlink character style in InDesign with the “no break” feature enabled. However, that can result in appearance and text flow problems.

b) Furthermore, I tried to convert a Word document with a long hyperlink to PDF (using the Word Print command), and the same problem occurs.

To make matters worse, when I try to convert any Word document to PDF using the “Adobe PDF/Convert to Adobe PDF” menu item, I get this message:

“The Acrobat PDFMaker server could not be loaded. Do you want to run the installer in repair mode?”

I tried the repair mode. Then I tried it again from the Add/Remove Programs option in Control Panel. That did not solve either problem. Regarding the PDFMaker problem, after a search of this forum, I found this posting from Wedor, back in 2005:

“To restore the PDFMaker buttons in your Office application, first try the following: In the Office application, choose Help > About application name. Click Disabled Items and then check to see if PDFMakerOfficeAddin is listed. If so, select it and click Enable. Then close all dialog boxes and restart the Office application….”

I checked for disabled items and found two:

Document: pdfmaker.dot
Addin: pdfmaker.dot

However, there is a message in that window that reads:

“The items listed below were disabled because they prevented Word from functioning correctly.”

That is not very helpful. Can anyone tell me what will happen (or might happen) to Word if I enable those two items?

For what it is worth, at the start of the original Acrobat 8 installation a message was displayed that said something like "...an earlier version of Acrobat was found on this computer. It is 'strongly recommended' that the earlier version be reomved." The window included an option to remove the older version, which I used.

Can anyone help?

Preferred Solution: PDF conversion failure and truncated hyperlinks after PDF conversion

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


At first, I don't need to recover my data, I just want my drive back to re-use it.
How can a format my usb drive including all boot sectors which sees to be locked/write-protected by bitlocker?

My problem starts with decrypting my drive by deactivting bitlocker on it by entering the valid password/recovery key. At 36% of decryption the process halts without reason. Now, I'm unable to access my drive or resume the process.

I tried...
    ...to format with windows
   ..remove with diskmgmt
   ... remove with diskpart
   ... repair-bde
   ... manage-bde
   ... ubuntu live cd
   ... mass production tool software, to override the whole stick

nothing worked. The only thing which worked was once the software M3 Bitlocker recovery Free, but just one time to access the locked partition. But, as mentioned I don't need to recover my data. With that tool I'm not able to wipe the drive.

That Bitlocker protects my data till the end is good, but that it breaks my data and my hardware in such a case is not fair.
How can I break the write-protection mode to finally wipe the hard drive?

Hi guys. Can anyone point me to where I can find a method to convert from a C++ CTime object to a SQL DATETIME field and back in C++ ado.net managed code? I've dredged everywhere for almost a full day and can find nothing on it.

Unfortunately the help offered for many areas of C++ by M$ is becoming painfully thin and new processes to me seem to be becoming harder to find out about.


A:Solved: Conversion between C++ CTime to SQL DATETIME conversion

It's ok now, I solved it myself. It turned out to be remarkably easy (once you know). CString is recognised intrinsically.

CString myString;
System::String^ strS = gcnew System::String(myString);

For some inexplicable reason, the Systemax OEM PC we bought in 2006 had its Windows installation on a FAT32-formatted C: partition by default. I only noticed it this month, and after backing it up, I tried convert.exe based on what every-website-ever agreed on was the right instruction. Since it was running off of the partition it needed to convert, it asked me to run on the next restart, which it did. The process took at least 2 hours, but sometime in between the last time I checked up on it and when it finished, it apparently *undid* all the conversion it was doing, because the C: partition still read as FAT32. I did it again with the same result. I'm trying to borrow a video camera to record the end of the process that I keep missing, but does anyone have any ideas what could cause this kind of problem in the first place?

Forgive me if I'm asking in the wrong area, but I am wondering if anyone uses software or even non software (external devices) to convert music from LPs, tapes to MP3s and video to video formats. I am searching for something with ease of use for my mother who would love to convert her old collection of music for an Ipod. She's been wanting to do this for awhile now and I thought it would be a good Xmas gift.

If I'm in the wrong area, I appreciate a direction to the correct area.

Well, I can give you a partial answer.

There is a commercial application called Roxio Easy Media Creator that is a comprehensive suite of tools for creating, and editing all kinds of media such as video, audio, pictures, etc. and then managing them such as creating home DVDs, video clips, slide shows and of course disk burning. It costs around $50 and is easy enough to use since it is designed for the casual home user.

Within this suite is a utility called "LP and Tape Assistant". This utility has you connect the audio output from a LP player or Tape drive (or any audio source) to the input to your sound card on your PC. The utility then 'captures' the audio that comes out of your PC sound card (speakers) and converts it to any of several sound formats (such as MP3, WMA, WAV, etc.) and stores it in a file on your hard disk. You must do any queueing of the pieces and must manually type in the title, artist etc. if you want to so there is a fair amount of work involved. There are controls to autopause, silence system sounds etc. This utility can also be used to capture any audio from any source that is being sent to your PC speakers so you can surf the web looking for online radio to capture.

The same producer (Roxio) has provided, as a free 'Gadget' for Windows Vista, a stripped down version of this utility (LP and Tape Assistant, not the entire Easy Media Creator) that will do the capture and record functions of the full utility. The Gadget ... Read more

Hi Guys.

It's been a long while since I had to do this as on all new installations, I select NTFS straight away.

I have just finished repairing a system (It needed a thoroughly good spring clean, both hardware & software) & have got it up and running. System is currently being defragged.

However, the file system is FAT32 & I thought it would be better to convert to NTFS.

I believe that originally it was under the sytem tools menu(Not 100% sure where it was) & that it was simple to access.

On this system, I cannot find the conversion tool.

I would appreciate help on this as the owner will be coming later this afternoon to pick it up. Many thanks


Right-click my computer => manage => disk management. The option will be available when you right-click the partition.

If the FAT32 partition was created using another OS than XP you may want to read this first :

Okay. I tried about 9 kinds of video converters but none of them can convert flv videos to mp4, avi or any other format. Other formats work (avi-mp4, mp4-avi etc.) What is this kind of problem?

Any idea what's happening?

I'm thinking about order a couple of these volume regulators:


After talking with a sale rep on the phone, I learned that this interfaces via an RCA cable, but the sound cards on my rigs only have 3.5mm connectors. I'm wondering if there is any reason that the normal operation of the regulators would be effected in any manner, if a converter was used at these sound card? The connection at the speakers are already RCA, so that shouldn't be a problem.

None what so ever. The signal will remain the same, the only difference will be the connection.

Dear folk,

Last month I switched from Outlook for Mac 2011 to Windows Outlook 2010. I found that both the email clients support different file types for storing emails and other mailbox data, i.e. OLM in Outlook for Mac and PST in Windows Outlook. Let's come to the point now.

I need to access my old OLM files in Windows Outlook, but it is not possible without conversion. I searched a lot and came to know about many third-party utilities. Besides them, I found a blog post published about using IMAP to transfer email.

A manual trick is given in this blog post and it can help me import my OLM files' data to a new PST file according to the blogger. But I'm not sure about this. Can you please check the trick and let me know if it would be useful or not?


A:OLM to PST conversion???

Hi and welcome to TSG. The 'blog' is very spam like so I have removed the link.

If your question is if you can setup IMAP and and move over your POP3 or archived emails to that type of account for migrating to another computer then absolutely you can do that.

FYI, most email services these day support IMAP or are ActiveSync accounts, using a POP account is something you should rarely use and you'll avoid this problem.
