Thanks much for the response. I mentioned that I had the same problem
earlier, and happen to also have version 4.2 on my machine as well (I
to use the 4.3 beta with my major project because of a specific bug that it
fixed). I have the same links issue with pdfs in version 4.2 and my
recollection is that it's been well over a year since I last attempted
unsuccessfully to make this work, so we're probably talking about something
in the 3.x range.

So - therefore - it seems to me that maybe I'm just not setting it up
properly. The linked text shows up in the pdf as a formatted link and
clicking it highlights the whole phrase, so at least something is getting
passed on - it just doesn't jump to a web page.

Can you tell me what settings you use on the Links panel of the pdf export
dialog box? I am assuming that is where I must be setting things wrong, as
can't find anywhere else that makes any reference to links. As I said, the
definition within Writer is apparently good, as control-clicking on the
links in the document take me right to the web browser with the correct

Here's a PDF file, generated from LO, with a working hyperlink:
(if you'd like to open it, the PDF can be opened in LO Writer as it
incorporate the original document).

It include the PDF dialog open on the "link" tab. It's in french, but given
the large number of options, I think you'll have no difficulty to see
what's what.‚Äč In short: nothing checked, all on default settings.

Maybe the issue lies with your PDF reader instead? As far as I can
remember, for *me* the URL in PDF always worked... quite the opposite of
your experience :\
