    Can anybody recommend a freeware PDF print driver/software that allows for "live" or "clickable" links? I use PDF reDirect, which I really like, but when I "print" a webpage full of links, I end up with a pdf file with unclickable links. You can't click on the link in the pdf, and open the sites, without purchasing the "PRO" version. Before I do that, is there any good similar freeware that provides conversion of web links to clickable hyperlinks?

    As always, thanks in advance!

    CutePDF Writer appears to do as you ask & is free.
    I tested it in a VM & opened it with PDF-XChange Viewer
    Below is a PDF print screenshot of CutePDF website.

    Thanks, Tony. I'll give it a try. Apparently some people have trouble with the free version converting hyperlinks. I'm glad to hear it worked for you and I'll definitely give it a try. Thanks a lot!

    I agree. To URL's links it's easy to find a pdf printer. Not so easy is to find when the hyperlinks are done in Word, like in picture (Topic).

    For that I use Neevia on-line convert.
