PDF Publish with Sheet Hyperlinks Converted to Named Destination in PDF

Recommended Posts

We are testing the hyperlink tool for creating a master index to our office details, each with their own sheet within the same file. When we publish all sheets including the index sheets, all hyperlinks work correctly within a single PDF file by essentially converting the named sheets to bookmarks.  Our next step involves posting the master detail PDF to the cloud for access from anywhere.  We'd like to be able to click a hyperlink in our construction drawings and open the cloud PDF master detail file, which works fine, but we'd specifically like the cloud PDF to load directly to a specific sheet matching a particular detail, which would be possible if the sheet name was automatically converted to what acrobat refers to as a named destination.  A named destination in lieu of a bookmark can be directly referred to in the web address for a particular file, such as www.website.com/detail.pdf#nameddest=TOC.

 

Is it possible to have vectorworks publish a PDF so the sheet names are automatically converted to named destinations recognized by acrobat?

No response in terms of a Vectorworks shortcut.  I believe in the past, the only way we have accomplished direct links to named destinations was through manually creating these in Adobe Acrobat.
