Noticed that in interactive PDFs, there is no "Go to page" action that works with PDFs.
You have either "Go to First Page" or "Go to Destination". My contents are on page 2, so that rules out the first alternative. I'm thus left with alternative to, go to destintaion. However, when since I'm exploiting exploiting the Table of Contents bookmark-creating abilities, the actual table of contents is never included as bookmark destination you can go to.
I'm missing a checkbox that says "Include contents in bookmarks".
I can create the bookmark manually, it gets an anchor sign next to it in the Bookmarks panel. Is this the correct way to do it? What does it have an anchor sign?
How would InDesign know what page is the "Contents"?
What you generally have is tools to make an interactive pdf with
Go to First Page | Previous Page | Next Page | Go To Last Page
And these are great if you're building icons in that order.
But the software was never developed to allow the user to "Go to Specific Page"
The only way you do that is with the Bookmarks and Adding a "Go to Destination"
I see this as a limitation in the software - or rather - poorly implemented feature.
If you're in Acrobat you add that functionality there - or maybe some clever scripter has a way to add this function by running a script and applying the Go To Page button on the fly while making the PDF.
But for now - the only way I can see of doing this is with the "Go To Destination"
Well, thanks. I just added the book mark to the InDesign ToC page. I suppose that's an ok solution.
