    Hi, I have about 50 url hyperlinks in a pdf document (i have revu extreme), and I would like to know if it is possible to change them.

    Example:

    1. https://www.123.com/ohplayer?p1site&note1

    2. https://www.123.com/ohplayer?p1site&note2

    to… 35

    etc..

    To:

    1. https://www.123.com/ohplayer?p2site&note1

    2. https://www.123.com/ohplayer?p2site&note2

    to …35

    That’s a tough one. I think you have to Edit Action on each one.. 😬

    Are you jumping to each link shown on each page? You could go to the Hyperlink Panel (Alt+N) and right-click on each one to edit. might be faster in list form if you’re not already doing it that way.

      That’s an interesting idea. @lizlarsen Do you know if something like this could be done with JavaScript?

    This is fairly simple as long as the text in your document is the full hyperlink address. For example, your text in the document is “https://www.123.com/ohplayer?p1site&note1″, and not “text” with a hyperlink to a website address.

    Using the example you provided do the following:

    1. Search the document for “p1”

    2. In the search results list select all results then click the magnify glass with arrows just above the results and replace the “p1” text with “p2”.

    3. Delete all the old hyperlinks from the hyperlinks list.

    4. Automatically create new hyperlinks using Tools>Markup>PDF Content>Create Hyperlinks from URLs…
