    Hi,
    I believe I have uncovered a bug, or a strange behavior that is not very intuitive...

    I am exporting to PDF from the RadEditor. The exported PDF contains links to websites and online PDFs.
    While the website links work just fine, links to PDFs (from inside the exported PDF) do not work. 

    In Acrobat, you can inspect the link actions and see that www link actions are "Open a web link".
    While link actions for PDFs are "Go to a page in another document". Then it has "Page1" as the source?

    I was not able to find a way to change PDF link actions via the Telerik PDF export API. 

    My workaround was to create a redirect page that would accept the PDF URL as a querystring, then redirect the users. 

    I'm using Acrobat 10.x but other users were having the same problem. And I'm using Telerik.Web.UI.dll version 2011.1.413.35
    Hope that helps!

    Hello Joe,

    Although this is an old thread, I must say we have not forgotten or abandoned this issue. Our developers found that the problem is related to all controls which support the PDF format, not only RadEditor. A temporary workaround would be to set the OpenInNewWindow property to false. Here is the link to the bug report. I would recommend that you vote for it to increase its priority.

    Please excuse us for any inconvenience this may have caused to you.

    Best regards,

    Hello,

    Testing with this demo here (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/import-export/pdf-export/defaultcs.aspx) links are exported fine. 

    If you are using an old version of RadEditor, make sure to update it and test again.

    If you still have issues with the exported PDF, please sent us a support ticket or open a new forum thread (as this is a two years old discussion) with more details about the exact scenario.

    Regards,
    Ianko
