I am not sure if I am in the right place for this or not, but am hoping someone can help me. I am currently using InDesign CS3 to make a variety of PDFS for my place of work. Many of these PDFs have external links on them to other PDFs or other webpages. It is important to the owners of the company that when a user clicks on a link, it opens in a new window, rather than changing the current browser window.
You cannot do this with InDesign scripting.
You can do it with Acrobat scripting.
You could conceivably have an InDesign script call an Acrobat script to make it happen, if that were convenient.
