Hi, I am using LibreOffice to create a pdf which is working well, but when I add a hyperlink there appears to be no option that specifies a download, I am trying to make a hex file available, but it opens in the browser. In HTML there was a download specifier, is there anything similar?

When the hyperlink link is clicked it hands it off to the browser to handle as it does for that file type.
You can enclose the file in a ZIP which the browser will download.
Or you can use PHP to create a link which will download the specified file.

Thanks for the answer, I had thought of the zip solution, but as it was a small single file dismissed the idea. Having thought about it a bit more I think I am going to go with it :-)
