I created a PDF portfolio (I'm a researcher, not a designer, lol) with links to other PDF files of work samples. I wanted to share it with a link but I'm not sure that's possible. I tried using Dropbox and Google Drive, but when I view the link on a different computer, the links don't work. Do I need to figure out a different way to share the main PDF? I read that Acrobat creates relative links to files, so I thought the links in the PDF would remain intact. Any suggestions welcome! Thank you!

  • You can use Dropbox but you have to make the folder public, or something like that. Same for Google Drive. And this isn't a UX question.

    I’m voting to close this question because it is off topic not UX related

You can buy a domain using GoDaddy or some other service, then using Github Pages you can host a website for free.

You don't even need to create a website, but it will allow you to host your pdf on a custom domain such as rbuxr.me/portfolio.pdf

  • neocities.org also provides free static site hosting, with custom subdomain, e.g., rbuxr.neocities.org/portfolio.pdf Nov 25 at 10:28
