I can't produce PDF links in PDFs generated by File > Publish > PDF File in Arbortext 7.1. I dug through the config files and found this in C:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext Editor\doctypes\pdfconfig\pdfconfig.dtd:
The Annotations section allows you to turn off PDF features that
aren't relevant for printing, such as bookmarks and links. This
could speed up processing, and is required for PDF/X.

Is this where I can configure AT to generate PDF links?
That file is the DTD (allowable tag definitions) for the .pdfcf file. What you need to do is edit the .pdfcf file for your doctype if you wish to adjust those settings. I have no idea if PDF links are on or off in the shipped product or your doctype, but I guess you could check that as a first step.
Hi, from what I can tell we use the default PDF config file and our cross reference links (see page 76 - click on it and go to page 76) all work as does the references in the table of contents.
No, that's not the way to do it. Basically you have to make sure a few things are setup correctly:
You can try with the out-of-the-box DITA or Docbook samples to make sure links are working in that case, then work your way through the chain of things above to make sure you are able to get yours setup too.
Thanks for this information. To follow your process:
