Indeed it is
Select your text and open the hyperlink panel (Window>Interactive>Hyperlinks)
In the Hyperlink Window in the panel insert the location of the PDF on the internet (copying the url is usually the best way)
If you suffix the link with
It will open on that page!
Thanks Eugene, that is almost what I want
I found that I had to use - '/#page=3' to make that work.
I was also hoping that it would open the file in acrobat as opposed to a web browser though, am I doing something wrong?
That will depend on the user settings, and what their default application for opening PDFs is - as it's working through a web address, some people have their web browser open the pdf, others will have it set to open in Acrobat, or another PDF reader.
Bad solution, as it only works in browsers. The thread starter didn't ask for hyperlinks and browser navigation.
@Steve Kelly: if you need it to work for two PDFs on any data storage device, being in the same folder, then: no. Indesign can't do that, only Acrobat.
You could elaborate on how it's done in acrobat...
Nothing is ever straight forward is it
So how can I do that in Acrobat, and use no browser nav?
Thanks for your help guys
Create a hyperlink, similar to Indesign, but in Acrobat you can select an option to "Go to page in document" and then give the page number. Very arduous, but working.
If you make a master PDF, you can copy the hyperlinks in groups over to new PDFs.
