navto not working correctly

Dec 20, 2011 3:02 PM

Tags: #error #button #digital_publishing_suite #navto

I have a navto button on the first page of my document.

Exact wording: navto://Cover#1

I want it to jump to the second page in my stack.


When I press the button it jumps to the 3rd page of stack.


I have tried: navto://Cover




No matter what I put there it jumps to the 3rd page. I have tried deleting and rebuilding the button.


What am I doing wrong here?? This is the last thing I need to fix before I publish and I am going crazy.


Thank you,

    If there is a action executed when you use "navto://Cover" without the "#" and without a page number there is another object which is executing the action.

    Only "navto://Cover" will do nothing!

    I'm having the exact same problem, and it's extremely annoying. Deleted and recreated buttons, deleted and re-added the article. Nothing.

    Re: NAVTO:// operation not working


    As posted Before



    I don't think navto# works correctly when used on moved articles, as some of my links were broken within the folio inside



    This topic has popped up again, and I think it needs looked at by the DPS Team...

    I haven't moved anything. Simply created the article in InDesign, added to Folio, tested on iPad....and wasted a bunch of time trying to figure out what was wrong.

    Ok, the issues I was having were my mistake. You have to specify #1 when you want to go to page #2 when using the navto command.
