Acrobat Plug-ins and Applications

Hyperlinking
Creating an electronic document in PDF format? Want an index that is fully hypertext linked so the reader can just click on a page number and jump to the correct corresponding page? With Sonar Bookends Activate you can do that, as well as link the table of contents, e-mail addresses, web addresses (URLs), figure and table references ("see figure 6"), and page references ("continued on page 46"). The table of contents can be used to automatically generate bookmarks. Sonar Bookends Activate can do all of these things in seconds, saving you hours of labor each time you generate a new PDF! A free demo can be downloaded so you can try these features on your own documents.

PDF Bookmark and Hyperlink Generation

Generating bookmarks and hyperlinks in PDF files created for QuarkXPress documents is easy using Sonar Bookends QkLink.
You can manually predefine bookmarks in your QuarkXPress document, or text to be used for bookmark titles can be detected automatically using text format specifications that you provide (font, font size, bold, underline, italic, all caps, style sheet name, color). You also define the desired action for the bookmark (go to page with a particular zoom factor, open a file, or open a URL).

Hyperlinks can be manual predefined, too. Simply highlight the text that you want to be a link, then using a dialog box you can define the color of the link and the action (go to page with a particular zoom factor, open a file, or open a URL).
