Embed a Link in a PDF

I am working on a project where we need to embed a link ( a FMP url to be exact ), in a pdf. Putting the link in a data field, the link is correctly translated into a link in the PDF...well, assuming the entire link fits on one line.

 

Tested web urls, they worked fine in both Acrobat ( Pro/Reader ), and Preview.app.

 

When inserting a FMP url, Preview.app just beeps at me and ignores the link. It sees it as a link, but will not trigger it. Based on some light searching, it appears to be a limitation of Preview.app.

 

Has anyone come across a work around? Or have an idea for an alternate approach.
