Answers / Edit PDF
Hello,I have a directory containing thousands of PDF files. Many of these PDF files have hyperlinks. I want to remove these hyperlinks. How do I remove these hyperlinks with Adobe programatically or through the command line? If you are aware of support documentation on how to do this or can point me to a reference containing this information then please send it to me.Thank you,John

If you have Acrobat Pro you can do it with a batch process (aka Action). If not, you would need an external tool to do it.
Acrobat offers the batch/Actions sequences, where it would be possible to get rid of actual hyperlinks. However, if you talk of thousands of files, Acrobat may not be stable enough, and you would need something more industrial size. I think there is a product by Appligent which does remove annotations (and Links are annotations); contact them and ask. This would be a command line tool, which can easily be included in a script for your operation system. If you nevertheless want to do it in Acrobat, you would create a sequence, and you should be able to use the PDFOptimizer to clean up your documents.Hope this can help.
