Naming Page's in Page Panel?

Mar 16, 2012 6:51 AM

Is there a way to name the pages in the Pages Panel?  Since I am linking to dozens of pages, it's hard to identify which page contains which document.

    Not really.

     

    The Links Panel lets  you sort by page number. And the filename is associated to the Link.

     

    If you click the link you get a wider scope of that link.

    Linking in the sense of creating hyperlinks to pages? If so, I would suggest linking to a text anchor instead of a page number/name. In the event of adding or removing pages, links to specific pages will be rendered useless.

    This is a two step process, first define your destination(text anchor), then define the hyperlink, here is an example:

     

    Go to page 1(not TOC page), with text cursor highlight/select "1. Orange" Then from the Hyperlinks Panel > flyout > New Hyperlink Destination > Type: Text Anchor + Name: This will autoplace the selected text, which in this case is "1. Orange"

     

    Repeat for Grapes + Apples

     

    Go to TOC page, with text cursor highlight/select "1. Orange" Then from the Hyperlinks Panel > flyout > New Hyperlink > Link To: Text Anchor + Destination Text Anchor: the pull down will have all of your text anchors, for this select hyperlink, select "1. Orange"

     

    Repeat for Grapes + Apples

    The method I described, you can select a visible rectangle appearance and some different highlights (when link is clicked in pdf).

     

    You can create the hyperlinks with separate rectangles, but this may be harder to manage if you are adding or deleting various toc entries, and then you have to manually adjust the hyperlink rectangle.

    Regardless if you use text or an object for a hyperlink, you still need to create the destination first. Once this is completed, all the destinations will be in pull down menu:

    And I see what you are talking about: once you create a hyperlink with an object, the entry name into the hyperlink panel is generic. The method of selecting text will auto populate the name of the hyperlink with what you have selected.
