Hi everybody,

long time ago i created a book (a product manual) using InDesign; i've inserted named destinations inside it and exported it as an interactive pdf. Then i was able to open it at the named destination location with a command line like this:

AcroRd32 /A "nameddest=MyManual.indd:destinationName" "MyManual.pdf"

 

Now i just need to do the same, but i'm facing some troubles: i can see the named destinations list inside my InDesign project, but when i export it and execute the command line the pdf is opened at the beginning, not at the destination location.

 

I believe that the named destinations format, once exported, may have changed; once it was fileName.indd:namedDestination, now i don't know.

 

Is the access with command line to a named destination still available?

 

Thanks
