Convert all links in a PDF to Open In New Window

Direct purchase using PayPal: Pay securely and receive the tool immediately! ($99 per license)

Update (24/03/2014): The tool will now process not just URL links, but also links that point to other PDF files, and will set all of them to open in a new window.

This tool will easily and quickly convert all of the links in your PDF files, whether they are of the type "Open a weblink" or "Run a JavaScript" to open in a new window.
No need to manually edit hundreds of links just so that your file will remain open when the user clicks a link in it. The tool can batch process entire folders within seconds!

A free demo version of this script is available here.
This version will only convert the first 3 links in the first 3 pages of the first 3 files in the selected folder. Purchase the full version and be able to convert them all!

Important information about viewing PDF files in browsers: The current versions of some browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) contain their own PDF viewer plugins, which are often not very compliant with the full PDF standards and usually have problems with executing JavaScript code.
As a result, if you're using one of these browsers to view the files processed by this tool you might encounter some problems. To solve them read this page on how to set up the Adobe plugin as the default PDF handler in your browser:

Here's how it looks like:

NOTE: This application does NOT require you to have Acrobat or even Reader, and it will run on both Windows and Macintosh computers. You do need to have Java installed, though.

Hi Arnab,

That could be possible. Send me an email and we'll discuss it.

Hi, I am looking for a solution that will allow me to open a PDF file from within SharePoint (so in a web browser page), and then from within that document to click on a link to either an external PDF document (also housed within SharePoint) or a link to an external website and having them open in a new browser tab. Will this product work for this application? Thanks

Gilad D. (try67) said...


Yes, but it depends on what browser you're using... You need to make sure to open it using the Adobe plugin, which is unfortunately not supported anymore in most browsers.

will this application transform links to pages within the same document so that new windows are opened? i tried the demo of your apllication and it did not seem to work on the links i had made between pages

@Christian Troelsen
No, how can it? The file is already opened, and it can't be opened more than once.
