Wrongly can't edit Destinations in a pdf file, because we can't see them
Posted on 2011-02-21
We have a set of pdf files that include anchors (i.e. the kind that are referred to in a URL as abc.pdf#namedest=xyz where xyz is the name of the anchor (Acrobat refers to this as "a destination"). We want to change the page number that several of the existing destinations in the Acrobat file are set to. However, oddly, these destinations do not appear in the Destinations list, and so we cannot change their page numbers as we wish to. When we try to create a Destination with the existing anchor's, we get an error message saying that we can't do that because the destination already exists. Help! is there a bug fix for Acrobat re it wrongly not showing some Destinations? We tried both Acrobat Pro Extended 7 and 9 and got the same result. Alternatively, is there a 3rd party product that can edit a pdf file which we could use to delete the existing Destinations from this pdf? We could then create new ones with the same names.
