Presentation export to PDF with internal links? [closed]

I am creating a slide deck and I want to be able to hyperlink from one slide to another so that when it is exported to PDF people can navigate the presentation using the links. When I create a hyperlink and choose a target within the document, I can select my slides and everything works in LibreOffice.

When I export to PDF, the objects and text I have set as links show up as links (the hand appears when hovering over them), but when clicked they go nowhere.

I have played with the various export to PDF settings. Is there something else I need to do?

I found the answer. Instead of adding a hyperlink under the Insert menu, I clicked on the Interaction button in toolbar. When I added the action to jump to a slide from there, the link carried through into the PDF in both Adobe Reader and Mac Preview.image description
