Merge and combine files
Hi Joe DeSutter,
If you create a button and use the Go to View or Open Page command, the links will remain relative so long as you don’t change the folder structure. Just try it on a test folder and move it to a completely different location. The links in the subfolder called Chapter still link back to the Menu document in the directory above.
I have 200 PDFs linked together in 2 folders on a CD for distribution. Nine files are in a “Chapters” folder; the rest are in a “Background Notes” folder. “Menu” is only document NOT in one of the 2 folders. It opens automatically upon insertion of the CD and accesses Chapters—which access Backup files—many of which are also linked to each other. My problem: I don’t know how to create a “back to menu” link for each Chapter. I can do it on my own computer with E:\Menu (E being my CD/DVD drive). But how do I create a “Return…” link that works on other computers, most of which use D: for their CD/DVD drive. Is there a generic protocol that will open it that link on ANY computer? (I do not want to disaggregate the files from their current folders unless I have to) Thanks, Joe D
