PDF Hyperlink Explorer and Fixer

PDF Hyperlink Explorer, a part of eCTD Office, scans your e-submission and provides a report listing functional and non-functional links, including all link properties (link page number, link type, link text, target document, destination, zoom and alike).

Use PDF Hyperlink Fixer to explore and quickly process links, adjust links, delete links, fix broken links, clone hyperlinks, optimize PDF documents and more...

In an eCTD (or NeeS/VNeeS) submission, PDF hyperlinking plays an important role.

Both bookmarks (outlines) or content links (link annotations) help accelerating the e-submission review process.

Never mind if you are submitting in EU, US or AU - all Agencies prefer links that are operational and valid.

What's more: best practices ask for valid file links, inherit zoom, no web links, visible bookmark pane and alike.

You certainly would not like to get an RTF (Refusal To File) because of a few broken hyperlinks in your electronic submission!
