Error description

  • When exporting to PDF, if a URL is sufficiently long to wrap
    across more than one line, it will not work as a link.
    
    There are two problems: only the first line is a link; and the
    link the first line points to is invalid. Only the former was
    specifically reported.
    
    To Recreate :
    
     - enter a long URL into object text e.g.
    'http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/doorshlp/v9/topic/com.
    ibm.doors.requirements.doc/topics/t_rpeconfiguremodule.html'
     - export to PDF
     - attempt to follow the link in the pdf.
