Adobe Pro 9: Link to Another Document

Hello EE

I would like to setup a link in Adobe Pro so when a word is clicked, it opens up another PDF.

Catch: I need it to open the other PDF, but go to a specific page, not just open and go to the first page (hope that makes sense).  Is this possible?

Thanks for the help!

Yes, you can do that. Open both files in Acrobat and make the one that will contain the link the active document. Then bring up the link tool and select the "go to a page view" option. This will prompt you to select the the destination page view. Now you switch to your target document, bring up the page you want to link to and create the link. Save the document and give the new link a try.

Oooo...Nice...is there a way to go back to the original document? Or is it possible to have this link open up in a new window?

Once you've created the link, bring up the link properties and go to the "Actions" tab. Edit the link properties. Here you will see the "Open in" setting. One option is to open in a new window.

BTW: There is a way to go back to the first document: Select "View>Go To>Previous View" - but the user has to know how to do that, or you need to add a button or a link with a "execute menu item" action. Then just select that menu item from the list.
