I think the product is great. Just wanted to add input that this feature would be very useful for us as well.

Hi Support,

I've tried to have my local links working in the PDF but it's not because <a href="#localLink"> gets rewritten to <a href="">.

The anchor works like that on the browser but when I export the HTML to PDFCrowd, the a tag tries to redirect to the website instead of scrolling to the corresponding anchor in the PDF file.

How can I fix this ?

Hi Again Support,

To fix the problem, I had to remove the base tag. Of course, I had to make sure the files and images were using the full URL.
