I need to archive a large catalog of .pdf documents. To do this I created an inDesign CS5 file to act at the index.
I then created hyperlinks to the individual files from the index. This all works fine on my computer.
BUT - when I move it out to a shared server where my department needs to access it, it ceases to work.
>>>>Indesign index file and resulting index .pdf at this level
>>>>>>>Sub File folder-1
>>>>>>>20 files that index file links to
I know the reason is the file path is looking for my computer/desktop/project folder/sub folder.
When I copied the project folder to a shared server the first three levels of this path changed.
Does anyone know the work-around on this?
Hey, I had the same problem you are having and this is the response I got. I have not tried it but it seems to make sense. Let me know how you do.
It sounds like you want to use relative http links in your PDF. Seehttp://indesignsecrets.com/making-relative-hyperlinks-to-files-in-inde sign.php.
Thanks - will check it out!
This works EXACTLY like I wanted it to!
