I’m working on a project using Adobe InDesign. Essentially it is a 400 page A4 manual that will be exported as a PDF and loaded onto the Clients intranet. I need to create hyperlinks within the document wherever there is a “refer to” in the text so that people can click on that and go straight to the section. This is further complicated because I need to split the document into 10 pieces because the whole document is too large to be downloaded in remote areas of the state with very poor internet bandwidth. So essentially the hyperlink needs to reference a separate document and take them to a specific page / section
Place all documents in an InDesign Book File, INDB. There it is possible to link to another document. You can at the end select any INDD file in the INDB panel and export it as single PDF file.
Hi Willi, thanks heaps for the quick reply. In my case I will need to have multiple PDFs as the final output. Do you know if this method you described can work with multiple PDF files ? I assume that I would need to the make the hyperlink location based on the final URL on the client's server.
Try it. I assume, if the file is saved in the same location, it should not cause any problem. If the client moves it around, he is lost anyway, no link will work.
