Welcome to the forums. Hopefully someone else will jump in here because I'm no expert on PDF files. How are you opening the pdf? I ask because if you are using a shortcut control, you can add the necessary parameters for the adobe reader to select the page, but I don't know what these parameters are off the top of my head. There are other ways to open a pdf other than the shortcut control but some of these may limit your options.
Thanks for the welcome. I'm using the Shortcut control, but I'm not married to it. I'm willing to use whatever works. I saw where you can enter the parameters, but I have no clue how to reference a .pdf bookmark (or even if that's the right link type or if I need to do something different in Adobe). Hopefully someone out there knows.
I looked into this. From what I read, I don't think this is supposed to work from compiled help. It can work from WebHelp. What you are looking for is a "named destination" in Acrobat, not a "bookmark." Apparently these are two separate things, but the named destination is accessed like an HTML bookmark, e.g. <A HREF="filename.pdf#destination>. You can also use a page number, e.g. <A HREF="filename.pdf#page=4">
Hope this helps.
I really appreciate you taking the time to look into this. Unfortunately, we're not using WebHelp, so I'm not sure if this will work. (Bummer) I'll give it a try anyway. Who knows, I may get lucky.
