Hi Frits van der Veer,
You’ll need either Acrobat Std or Pro. (not the free Reader) to combine files without subscribing to a service.
Uploading documents which might be confidential does not sound like a good ID (and is prohibited by my company). I had in the past a version which could combine 2 files without uploading and downloading sensitive information. Is Version 10.1 still able to do the trick (i now use 11.0). If not which version will do this.
(BTW this is standard available on a Mac in the app preview)
Thanks for the share!
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
