### Import LaTeX generated PDF documents into Confluence

I am using the free version of the latest adobe acrobat. I am using a cloud (ie hosted) version of Confluence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confluence_(software)) which is a commercial wiki that uses its own markup language. There are a number of latex plugins for confluence - I do not use any of these.

I have a latex document which I compile.

\documentclass[final,authoryear,3p,times,twocolumn]\usepackage{prettyref}\usepackage{url}\usepackage{cite}\usepackage{hyperref}\begin{document} \citep{myref001} \bibliography{D:/mybibfile}\end{document}

When this compiles to a PDF it shows a reference which contains a hyperlink of the form:

[*] bob, 2013. article name. 1:1, [[url]PDF[/url]]

where the PDF is a hyperlink to a file location.

When I copy the output reference above and paste into confluence (or indeed a word document) the hyperlink underlying PDF is lost. I want to retain it.

I was wondering if there was a way to compile the PDF such that when it is copied and pasted into confluence I could retain the hyperlink under PDF.

Are there any packages for latex which I could compile with which would allow me to do this?

Thank you

There are other softwares than Emacs and Latex ? You people must be kidding me...

Seriously, it's only Latex compiled documents ? Not every time I copied-pasted from PDF I got surprises, but most of the time. Actually, I don't think about it anymore...
