Maintaining links when converting from epub to pdf

Hello,

I have a bunch of of epubs that I need to convert to pdf because... well, long story short - many of the people who are supposed to read the books don't have administrative rights to install an epub-reader on their work computer.

So - at first I thought I'd just print-the-books-to-file/pdf with cups or similar. This worked fine, however links in the book did no longer work in the pdf version.

I then turned to Calibre in hope that it would be able to convert the epub files instead. I've gotten text size, cover and margins right, but links are not working in pdf's created this way either.

Does anyone know of a certain parameter that I need to change, or perhaps another way that I could achieve my goal?

Thanks

I'm guessing you're on linux and using an outdated version of calibre. Update calibre to the current release.

You were right, I was on 0.9.8.
0.9.30 does in fact maintain links during conversion - thanks for your reply

However 0.9.30 doesn't maintain custom bullets, unfortunately.
Here's what my bullets look like in epub:


And here's what they look like when converted to pdf:


Do you know of any solution to this?

Thanks
