In a Visio 2013 drawing, I have hyperlinks attached to shapes, sometimes multiple hyperlinks on one shape. When I Save As or Export to PDF, my PDF has no hyperlinks, singles or multiples. When I Save As a Web page, HTML, only one hyperlink shows for shapes that had two or more. Are there workarounds for these problems?

Since the target applications (PDF and HTML) support only one hyperlink per "object" it makes sence to export only one (preferably the first one).
You may want to put your hyperlinks in individual sub-shapes.
I think to recall having seen a tool that extracts the hyperlinks and writes them in new shapes. (Paul Herber's tools???)
