Steps to reproduce

We are sending mails with a newsletter in an attached PDF document to our clients. Links in these PDF-documents are working fine when they are opened by Adobe Reader or IE.
When opening the links in the Microsoft Edge PDF-viewer a next word to the link is added to that link, resulting in a non-working link.

See the attached PDF-file. Open it with Microsoft Edge and click on the link. The word “Toegang” will be added to the link and it will not work.

Can a MS expert reproduce this bug?

  • After receiving the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607) (OS Build 14393.222) the problem was solved.

    I can see that this issue #8925819 was assigned to Amit K.
    Unfortunately I got no further response. So I cannot see whether the problem was solved due to the intervention of Amit K.
    To whom I have to say thanks?
