If a PDF file is uploaded to Easel Activities, any links or hyperlinked images included in the PDF will no longer work. This is because the interactive layer added through Easel Activities flattens the original PDF file, including any hyperlinks.
To resolve this, you can download the original PDF file and open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader to access any links in the resource. Then, you can recreate the links in Easel by following these steps:
- Highlight the text or click the image you want linked
- Select the “Add link” tool
- Copy/paste the URL
- Click “Apply”
