  • I read that hyperlinks in Headers and Footers were NOT clickable in Word 2007.

  • Hi,

    Have you ever seen clickable Header and Footer in Word documents?
    I suppose it is not possible to insert hyprerlinks in Header or Footer, even if it is with Word 2013 and 2016.

    Would you explain what you are doing?

  • The problem with everything in Word headers/footers is that you have to open the header/footer before you can actually click or select anything. So hyperlinks are clickable once you have opened the header.

    If, however, you insert a hyperlink in a header and save the document as a .pdf, the link should be clickable
