Hi,

I'm able to create the hyperlink to open external pdf file. But is there any chance to open this external pdf file on the specific page or location? I tried to assign the page via "Hyperlink Destination Options" but it doesn't work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My investigation has proved fruitless - I cannot get it to work at all on a local file - something for the feature request.

Hi,

Can you confirm the version of the software and operating system you are using?

Do you mean to say that you want the pdf to be visible inside your InDesign? Like a preview window type of feature?

Can you draw your plan and share screenshots?

Hi,

I'm using ID v.15 running on Windows 10. I will export the .indd file to interactive pdf and I need to open external (another) .pdf file on the specific page or location. In this test example I have a hyperlink asigned to the object "OPERATING MANUAL PART B" which opens external .pdf file. And I need to open it on the page #57.

That link is obviously a dud - just an example when linking your pdf - insert #page=4 to go to page 4 in the hyperlinks panel.

 

Should work.

I've already tried that and that doesn't work. That's why I'm asking here. I assume it works on the website only.

Thank you for your reply but as I wrote, that's the local hyperlink:

D:\Document\Test\Checklist\checklist_name.pdf#page=57

I use hyperlink as I need relative link and not the absolute one.
