Disabling Hyperlinks

By default, the drawDOM method creates clickable hyperlinks in the generated PDF document.

You can disable this behavior with the avoidLinks option.

    <div id="content">
        This is <a href="">a non-clickable link</a>.
        var draw = kendo.drawing;

        draw.drawDOM($("#content"), {
            avoidLinks: true,
            paperSize: "A4"
        .then(function(root) {
            return draw.exportPDF(root);
        .done(function(data) {
                dataURI: data,
                fileName: "avoid-links.pdf"
