Anchor Text in PDFs

Does anyone know how to insert anchor text links in a PDF which you create through a PDF converter (eg. from Microsoft Word). Or can you only do this by buying an expensive PDF editor like Adobe Acrobat?

I use free software that you can find here.

I create documents in Word open them in Open Office and then save them as a PDF.

All the text links links in photoscome through with no problem.
