Problem

Hyperlinks do not work when Revu 2019 is used in Presentation view.

Cause

This issue is caused by the fact that Presentation view displays an image of the file instead of the original PDF. Although this improves the speed of on-screen rendering, the image doesn’t contain dynamic content, like hyperlinks.

Solution

If you need a full-screen view with working hyperlinks, you should make sure the page view is set to Fit Page (Ctrl+9) or One Full Page , and then switch to Full Screen mode by pressing the F11 key on your keyboard. To get out of Full Screen mode, you can press F11 again or click the Full Screen or Leave button in the floating toolbar.
