Question How to create internal hyperlinks on a PDF

Hi all,
Im trying to produce a document which has internal hyperlinks on it. The file needs to be a PDF, which I am creating by saving a word document as a PDF (I don't have a specialist PDF maker) - even using word this seems impossible - word seems to give you the option of linking to: the top of the document, heading, or bookmarks; it doesn't seem to let you choose the specific text/place I want it to link to.

So - how do I go about doing this? I'm on a mac btw.

Insert a Bookmark at the position you want the Hyperlink to jump to.
Create the Hyperlink and link it with the Bookmark.

Big thanks for this - BUT.... it works fine in word (which is way more advanced than I was!) but when i then save it to a PDF, the hyperlink no longer works.
Any ideas?

Rather than "Print" to pdf do a "Save As" and select pdf in the "Save as Type" list. Links will now work
