Re: Linking from HTML to bookmarks within PDFs
I've got one manual where there are references from the chapter files to
specific subsections in another reference document. Because of the need
to link across formats (and maintain the links), I'm thinking the best
option is making the reference document a PDF and then linking to sub
areas within the PDF. However, I can't find information about how to do
Does anyone know if this is possible?
Depends on whether the target PDFs are stored locally or on a web server.
HTML links can point to a specific named destination in a PDF *when the PDF is stored on a web server*, eg http://www...../doc.pdf#dest ("dest" is a named destination present in the PDF).
It is also possible (even though not recommended with dynamic content) to point to a specific page by its number (http://www...../doc.pdf#page=123).
Opening a locally-stored PDF at a specific destination (with the free Adobe Reader, and other than through a link in another PDF) requires a plug-in (eg http://www.gutsche.org/GotoAcro or http://www.merlin-os.co.uk/products/nameitgo/index.html )
The plug-ins/add-ons supporting this functionality have to be installed in end-user workstations.
