Thought I'd write this in case someone runs into the same problem.
I had four hyperlinks at the end of four bullet points (the bullet points were in one text box.) But they didn't work, and yes, I'm familiar with how to create a hyperlink. Then I placed each of my bullet points with the hyperlink in its own text box, and then, magically, the hyperlinks work. I'm on an imac running parrallels, btw.
Anyway, this might save someone some time in the future. --Daniel
