Are there any Open Source Tools to Remove PDF links in Ubuntu. I use PDFtk and i am not able to find any internal links in it. Due to the Internal links my python script that uses PyPdf to merge the PDF files into one file fails.
A simple step to remove all the hyper links from a PDF is by printing, that is by choosing print to file option. but this process doesn't remove the highlight of the hyper link. hope this helps
When I extract the pages from a PDF with pdftk and assemble them again afterwards the links are gone. Example:
mkdir temp cd temp pdftk ../FileWithLinks.pdf burst pdftk *.pdf cat output ../FileWithLinksRemoved.pdf
