This tutorial explains how to extract all links from PDF. You can see the total number of links (or I say hyperlinks) present in a PDF document and then extract all those links in a few mouse clicks. All the links extracted from PDF file can be stored in a single plain text file. To do this in a simpler way, I am covering a free software, named as “PDF Link Editor“.
This software lets you extract links from one PDF file at once but the output comes really good. You also have the choice to extract only selected links if you are not interested in extracting all the links. The interface of this software shows each URL, anchors associated with links, and page numbers where those links are available. After getting all the information, you can set the output folder and then extract links from a PDF file easily.
In the screenshot above, you can see all links extracted by me from a sample PDF file using this software.
