This worked the other day, but I'm not sure what happened since...
Here's what I've done in my document today:
1. I wanted the first page *number* to be on the left side of the spreads, not the right. I turned off the page shuffling options so this would happen. So now, page 4 (the page after the cover, copyright, and ToC) is numbered as page 1, as this is what begins the content section.
2. Reordered/formatted my ToC to reflect these new page numbers. When I created the ToC, I made sure "Create PDF Bookmarks" was checked.
3. Did "test" exports of my document into PDFs, so I could see the layouts. Included the "Bookmarks" option under the Interactive section.
But when I export the document, the bookmarks/links created by the ToC in InDesign don't work... The hand appears as if there is a link there, but when I click it, it just stays on the ToC page.
As the auto ToC option automatically creates bookmarks, this should work... I haven't changed anything regarding that. Can someone please shed some light into what is going on here?
Thanks all :]
What PDF are you making Interactive or Print ?
Bookmarks and hyperlink automatically work in Interactive PDF however while making the Print PDF you have to manually check the option under "General option" in Export PDF screen to include the interactivity.
