Summary

Need to make a text field into a live hyperlink for PDF functionality

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v5

Operating system version

Mac 10.10.3

Description of the issue

I am fine with creating a button to go to the appropriate URL that is unique to each record.  That works wonderfully well in the FMP files I use.  What I need is to have a text field that will have the traditional underscore formatting that activates the function to open the URL once it is clicked.  For me to have a button to do this function in FMP, is not enough.  I am talking about then printing and saving to a PDF and having the link remain active.  Currently the button is part of the PDF, but doesn't do anything to perform the opening of the URL for that specific record.  Nothing in the forum deals with this specific problem.
