I should add that this PDF has been correctly added as a baggage file, and I have designated a destination name in the PDF to be used in the link.
I think you'll find that adding the page number can't be done from the Design tab. I suspect the person who did it previously added the link to the PDF and then went into the HTML tab to add the #page=296 there. Just remember to save the topic before you leave the tab or you may find the page number is not saved.
Exactly right. Your suggested solution solved the problem.
What is the point of the design view if it doesn't encompass this type of change?
Also, tangentially related, why are these oddities and bugs not documented? I think the most frustrating thing with these Adobe technical tools, especially RH, is not learning their complexities, but the copious number of bugs, workarounds, and undocumented information. It seems to really make one an expert with these tools requires not a knowledge of the tools themselves so much as knowldge of these shortcomings, none of which can be learned through any means other than much suffering, troubleshooting and forum posts.
Thank you for helping me solve this one... and enduring my rant. This fix will save me a lot of frustration moving forward.
