Thank you Alexander.

I do not have access to create this as a "real Annotation" as it is in a
context of 3D modeling software. I did this probably about ten years ago
and actoread simply worked ever since day one. When observing more and more
people moving to Linux within business office deployment and with the
constant explaining why they need acroread i realized that it would be nice
not to depend on Adobe abandon-ware (linux client receives no more
updates), so this pushed me to file a report.

Any chance to do auto-link in poppler? What would be the harm? Is it
against the specs? Would it be computationally expensive?
