In ms word the navigation will show when we press Ctrl+F (i.e., find option) and has a three option
1. Browse the headings in you documents
2. Browse the pages in you documents
3. Browse the results from your current search
This three option are for searching in your document
Likewise you can do it in Indesign by doing find & replace option (Press Ctrl+F) and find for it. It has a many option to choose
yes, actually this is called the Hyperlink pannel,
select the text you want to become a reference point (an anchor) and make a URL pointing to this anchor, this reference will be listed in the hyperlink and you can click on oranges numbers to go straight where you want to go.
I think the easiest way to solve your problem is to create a TOC and then use the bookmarks panel to navigate.
I personally use this method to navigate through my user manuals with more than 150 pages in seconds.
yes, that's a good alternative unless you don't need to specifiy selective points in your document, The advantage of using hyperlinks anchors is that anything can be an anchor point, a plain text, a graphic, a picture, any shape created.
I only want to jump to Chapter and Section headings, so the TOC solution sounds perfect.
Actually, I have a TOC in my document (publisher changed it all from word to InDesign for me).
But when I open the Bookmarks panel, I don't see any bookmarks...
Any more info on using the TOC to jump to the places in the document is appreciated!
OK, thanks a lot,
I made a table of contents with the "Make pdf bookmarks" selected and it worked as you said.
It looks like the publisher left that option off when they made their TOC for me.
Which leads me to a question I will put in another post....
