Thread: Links to specific pages within PDFs

  1. #1

    Default Links to specific pages within PDFs

    I would like to build my own personal FAQs with links *into*
    EagleFiler-saved documents. For example, a FAQ for Rails
    might be a list of links with this text:

    * create, create!, save, save!
    * assert_tag
    * testing cookies

    Some of those might be links to web archives -- single pages
    with the answers right there in front of me. But others will
    be links to a 723-page book. If they're just links to the book as a whole, finding the
    page I want might be several steps of groveling around
    inside Preview. (I know about Preview bookmarks, but there's
    one list for everything and, as far as I can tell, you can't
    even order the list.)

    Is there a way to do a link to a place within a PDF in
    EagleFiler? If not, would this be a useful feature?

    I wouldn't mind editing URLs by hand. (That
    is, change

    x-eaglefiler://open?recordID=702&library=~/Documents/eagle-main/eagle.eflibrary

    to something with a "?page=213" on the end. I wouldn't mind
    if EagleFiler popped open Preview and told it to go to a
    page (rather than using the in-place PDF viewer) -- though
    it seems that Preview doesn't have an AppleScript
    dictionary. (!?)

    No, but that’s a feature I’ve been wanting to add.

    Yes, that’s rather disappointing.
