Retain Hyperlinks on Shapes Saved to PDF
1. Add a shape to a PowerPoint 2011 or 2016 slide.
2. Add a hyperlink to the shape.
3. Save the file as PDF and open in Reader. The hyperlink is gone.
This works as expected in the Windows versions of PowerPoint, please fix!

According to this post, it's supposed to be fixed :
But I have the latest update installed, and I can confirm THIS IS NOT FIXED.
Hyperlinks on shapes don't work at all. They do work on text now (after 5 years of the whole internet complaining), but it's impossible to get rid of the underline on a link, because, drumroll please... the solution in Office support is to create a shape !
Please fix this ! It should be very simple.
