I’m trying to create links from a webpage to specific spots in a pdf. I can get it to work perfectly if I create the hyperlink destinations in the pdf, using the Acrobat software. However, I was told you can create the hyperlink destinations in InDesign, then export the pdf, which I’d like to do because the InDesign original is going to change a lot, and then I wouldn’t have to recreate all the destinations every time it’s updated. When I try it, though, I can’t get the webpage link to go to the destination, only to the top of the pdf. Anyone know why? I’m in CS3 and Windows.

What does that have to do with Photoshop?

Please post your question on the InDesign forum again. As I understand it, proper web-enabled URL handling is a CS4 exclusive feature. Previous versions of InDesign only support static links within your document or snippets. Anyway, ask the right people to be sure.

No problem. Since you at least provided the product name, nobody got confused. 😉
