Creating hyperlinks between articles in InDesign DPS

Having trouble getting text hyperlinks between articles to work when uploaded to the iPad, the hyperlink was created from text with a navto:articlename url in the hyperlinks panel. I am using CS5.5 and folio builder 1.1.3, if anyone could point me in the direction of a tutorial which is relevant to my problem that would be great. I think I am doing everything correctly but alas it just wont work.
Thanks in advance,

Yeah, well, asking for this in the InDesign Feature Request Discussion forum is not very logical, is it.
Try the Digital Publishing Suite forum.

    One of the articles is titled 'Offers specific' in the folio builder so I created a hyperlink with a url 'navto:Offers specific' on a different article, is this correct? Is the space between Offers and specific a problem?
    Thanks in advance,

    try navto:// insteda of just navto:
    The space should not be a problem, but I, personally, avoid spaces in
    hyperlink names.

  • Hyperlinking Between Multiple InDesign-Generated PDFs

    Hi all. Here's my scenario:
    Windows XP, InDesign CS3
    We're working on a quarterly publication that contains an index. We want the index to be cumulative going forward. For example, the April 2008 issue will just have April 2008 articles listed in the index but the June 2008 issue will have April + June articles listed in the index.
    We want to have the index listing link back to the respective articles. So I've figured out that in June I can:
    1. Create the June index items using the InDesign index feature. This creates hyperlinks back to the articles (if we set up reference markers).
    2. Open the April issue next to the June issue and copy and paste the April index over to the June file. This will copy the April hyperlinks over too but MAINTAINING their link to their April file.
    3. Merge the two lists manually.
    So then we export April and June to two separate PDFs. When I open the June PDF and click on a June article name in the Index, it hyperlinks to the June article. When I click on an April article name, it opens the April PDF and takes me to the respective April article. BUT... it closes the June PDF!
    I don't want the June PDF to close... I want it to stay open so when I'm done with April's article, I can close the April PDF and the June PDF is waiting for me in the background.
    I know that I can edit the carried-over April hyperlinks by hand in Acrobat to make them "open in a new window" - but is there any chance that there's a way (or a script or a default setting) to make all the hyperlinks to another PDF open in a new window without editing them all by hand in Acrobat?
    I know this is a convoluted question so THANK YOU just for taking the time to read it over and think about it.
    All suggestions are welcome.

    Publisher can create CMYK files, you go save as, then choose PDF, then click on Options or something and change it to Commercial Press.  This is Microsoft's version of the Press Quality export setting in Indesign, with it converting all images to CMYK, downsampling to 300dpi etc.
    Have I made myself clear? 
    The CMYK images created this way have a terrible sort of under colour removal.  Think for example of a dark blue garment, where most of the garment is  something like 100C 60M 0Y 60K, but in the shadows it goes darker than  that, up to 100K.  Well in that area of 95 to 100% black in the image Publisher will convert it to only that, with no other colours underneath it.  But the areas surrounding it will be rich black.  This won't show up on digital proofs, even hi res ripped inkjets, and won't even show up on a press pass unless the machine has drying, because it is not until the ink dries off that you notice these weird photos....  Anyway what I do has already been said above.
    1. Refry it first.
    2. You should be able to sync your settings.
    3. No, it just thinks it can.
    In this case I actually had the Publisher files as well, so I printed them to PDF using Acrobat, and the images were fine.  Problem is the client had gotten used to text and other elements the way they looked using Publishers crappy CMYK export so I had to combine that with the proper images by cropping in Indesign..
    Here's examples of what happens:
    CMY channels only, BAD!
    CMY channels only, GOOD!

  • Creating scientific articles in Adobe DPS

    Dear community,
    When creating documents with many references (in my case over 100), is there a smart wat to present them and navigate them that does not entail creating a seperate article for each and every one of the reference documents. In this case assuming that the references need to be present in their entirety within the folio/app.
    Anyone with experience on this issue or have any ideas?

    "When creating either a button or hyperlink, you can replace “http://” with “navto://” in the URL field. Then specify the target article name as it appears in the Folio Builder panel. Use the Article Name value, not the article’s Title value. Valid navto formats include navto://[articlename] and navto://[articlename]#n. Adding #n specifies a page number. The first page of a document is 0, so specifying #2 jumps to page 3." 00.html#WS67cb9e293e2f1f606f59889512d69320e0d-8000
    So if you start each of the reference document from the new page (assuming you enter all of them right after the end of document and list of references) and at the end will have link back to the list of references at the end of the document:
    list of references (=links to 1st pages of the reference documents)
    p1 of reference document#1
    link back to the list of references
    p1 of reference document#2
    link back to the list of references

  • [CS3 JS] How To Create Hyperlinks In InCopy?

    I have a client that wants to be able to author hyperlinks in InCopy, both links to named targets as well as links to URLs.
    It appears that the InCopy scripting object model does not include the hyperlink-related objects from the InDesign model, even those those objects can be found in an INCX document if a link is created within an InCopy article within InDesign.
    I'm trying to figure out what the best/quickest solution is given that I can't do it using scripting. I have already implemented a hyperlink creation dialog that emulates the InDesign New Hyperlink dialog.
    Unfortunately, I cannot assume or require that the InCopy users have InDesign installed. If I did I could just create a temporary InDesign doc that linked the InCopy article, create the link there, then save and update the InCopy article.
    Given that, I'm not sure how best to go about this.
    The ideas I've come up with so far are:
    1. Don't create real hyperlinks but use Note objects to capture the hyperlink source and target information. This would satisfy the client's requirement to be able to transform the links on conversion of the InCopy data to XML but wouldn't result in working InDesign hyperlinks.
    2. Modify the INCX document directly to add the appropriate hyperlink objects then reload it as part of the hyperlink creation process. Ugly but should work.
    3. Use XML markup in InCopy to represent the hyperlinks. I don't like this as much as the Note option because it's less obvious to authors what's going on and is easier for authors to mess up accidentally when they are editing.
    4. Implement a full-on InCopy plugin. This is really beyond my current capabilities and the scope of the project.
    5. Log a bug against InCopy to request that the hyperlink objects be added to the API. (Probably not going to give me a result in the time I need, even if it's an appropriate thing to do.)
    6. ???
    Is there some trick or back-door mechanism I've missed that I can use through InCopy scripting?

    I did this from the advanced menu to make all hyperlinks work. All I got were boxes around my links that are not clikcable to the web page.
    Now I cannot undo this.

  • How to automatically create hyperlink destinations based on numbered list?

    I am very new to InDesign and am creating a template for an academic journal. Each article contains a list of references at the end and the references are cited in the main text (like what you see in Wikipedia if you are not familiar with scientfic journal articles). In exported HTML, the citation in the main text should be hyperlinked to the coressponding reference in the reference list. I have two questions:
    1) It is possible to ask paragraphy style to assign each numbered item a hyperlink destination? If this is possible, I can then manually inserted hyperlinks in the main text.
    2) one step further, is there any way (e.g. script) which can then insert hyperlink to those destinations based on pattern match? For example, in main text, the citation to reference #1 appear in the text as [1] which should be hyperlinked to reference #1.
    One more question, is there anyone who knows how academic journals handle the flow from InDesign to html? Certainly, the exported html cannot go directly online without further editing.
    Thank you.

    Hi Eric,
    I posted the script here. But it should be adjusted to your particular document. (Anyone with basic scripting knowledge can do this). I am sure it won’t work as it is. I assume that “comments” and “references” are in two different stories.
    Can I have the scripts from you (for a fee or free)?
    I don't sell my scripts: they're free.
    Can the scripts handle the pattens like these [3], [1-5], [3,4], [6, 8, 11-13]?
    This script can't, but another handles both single page numbers and page ranges like so:
    I can post it as well.
    Now I’d like to make one thing clear:
    I made a set of scripts for creating hyperlinks in InDesign documents for further exporting them to ePub/HTML. I can’t make a script that would work for everyone because all books are very different. I simply adjusted scripts for every book I had to work with (mainly changing GREP expressions and names of styles) and I have numerous variations of scripts. I can post them if someone is interested but you should be aware that they have to be reworked.

  • How do I create/host interactive articles with embedded video for use in browsers?

    I'm seeking a little guidance -
    How do I create/host interactive articles with embedded video for use in browsers?
    The aim is to bring together video, design, images and writing in one place. A little like Born Presents, but very accessible and user friendly.
    I'm happy using InDesign but want to create interactive articles / magazines that have embeded video files as required. I've been looking at .SWF files but I've come unstuck.
    I want people to view the articles via a blog, ideally with them opening in a lightbox style viewer. It's not intended for tablet viewing and people should be able to view and interact with the files with little effort on their part.
    I think I know how to create these files within InDesign, but I'm not so hot on web design and I'm not sure how to host these online. Does this start coming into the realms of Flash?
    If anyone could point in the right direction I'd really appreciate it - Thank you in advance.

    PDF is one thing. Folios for DPS is another. There is a little bit of
    overlap but not much.
    The interactivity in the folio overlays panel is for DPS only.

  • How to create hyperlinked text in F1 help of a particular Data Element.

    Dear Guru
    I have encountered an issuse regarding to create hyperlinked text in F1 help of a particular Data Element.
    For Example what i am trying to do is ---
    If you open a particular data element say "ATNAM" in se11 you will found the below documentation available for ATNAM -->>
    Characteristic Name
    Name that uniquely identifies a *characteristic*.
    >> The "characteristics" comes in hyperlinked bluecolor and if we press this it linked to below --- >>
    Definition: characteristic
    Classification (CA-CL)
    Property for describing and distinguishing between objects, such as length, color, or weight.
    Profitability Analysis (CO-PA)
    I am able to make 1st part of the documentation using SE61.
    But I am not able to make Hyperlinked part of that documentaion .
    please show me some way to develop this

  • Question about creating association between Sharepoint BDC entities using Visual Studio 2010

    I am following this tutorial:
    I am getting the following error:
     There is an error in the TypeDescriptors of Parameters on Method with Name 'CustomerToOrder' on Entity (External Content Type) with Name 'Customer' in Namespace 'BdcAssociationSample.BdcModel1'. The TypeDescriptors incompletely define where the Foreign
    Identifiers of Entity 'Order' in Namespace 'BdcAssociationSample.BdcModel1' are to be read. That Entity expects exactly '1' Identifiers, but only '0' TypeDescriptors with the correct Association were found from which to read them.
    I have viewed the following:
    after reading that article, I am still not sure what setting I am missing.  Does anyone have the full working source code from the msdn article linked above?

    According to your post, my understanding is that you got the symbols not loaded error.
    First try rebuilding your project by right mouse click the project > Rebuild If that doesn't work, try a clean of the project (right mouse click on the project > clean)
    If that didn't work check this:
    Right mouse click your project
    select [Properties]
    select the [Build] tab
    make sure [Define DEBUG constant] and [Define TRACE constant] are checked
    Click the [Advanced] button at the bottom of the Build tabpage
    Make sure that [Debug Info:] is set to [full]
    Click [OK] and rebuild the project ;
    Hope that works for you! (step 6 generates the .pdb files, these are the debugging symbols)
    What’s more, you can clean & re-compile the code, then install the respective dlls one more time to GAC (just remove them before adding to GAC again), do an IISReset to check whether it works.

  • Creating Scrollable text frames in InDesign

    I've been trying to create scrollable text frames in InDesign CS6 and, for the life of me, cannot figure out how to do so for an interactive PDF. 
    I've done so for touchscreen devices before through DPS and the scrollable frame option, but I've never tried to do it for something non-touchscreen/mobile.  I don't even know if it's possible, but I am sending this to someone who may not have touchscreen access with touchscreen scroll functionality and I wouldn't want to risk a good portion of text to go unread because of a lack-of functionality.
    So, I guess my question is:  Is there a way to create a scrollable text field for an interactive PDF that could be scrolled through using a mouse or keyboard? 
    Thanks in advance!

    No. It's DPS only.

  • How do I create jump to (page) links using DPS in creating a digital page turner for a catalog?

    I know how to use "navto" to jump to pages within the catalog created for our app.
    We want to use the same article files to create a digital page turner using DPS but cannot figure out how to do it. Google searches lead to answers that say it isn't possible, but if i view a page turner I created in 3D Issue via Adobe's Content Viewer, the pages jump (via the links I made in 3D Issue).
    I just can't believe that a huge company like Adobe has no way to do this in DPS.

    On pages you do not want to show-up delselect "include page in navigation menu" in the page inspector:

  • Hyperlink character options in InDesign

    I am creating hyperlinks in InDesign and do not have any options available under the "character options" box.  It just lists [none] with no options in the drop down menu. My hyperlinks WORK but do not appear in either preview mode or .pdf output with formatting that indicate the text is a hyperlink.  The "hand button" will appear if you hover over it, but you wouldn't know to do that because it just looks like any other text--no blue underline, for example.  I have selected the text as "text" and not as the "text frame."  Help is greatly appreciated.

    You have to create one or more Character Styles to populate that menu.
    Format some text the way you want your hyperlinks to look, (color, underline, etc.). With your newly formatted text selected, go to the Character Styles panel (if it's not visible, press Shift+F11), and choose New Character Style from the panel menu. Give it a name like "hyperlink" and click OK.
    Now, when you create or edit hyperlinked text, your Character Styles menu will include the character style you created, in addition to [None].

  • Creating Hyperlinks

    I know how to create hyperlinks to a place in the same document, and to another document; the result is that it just goes to the top of the other document.
    What I'd really like to know is how to create a hyperlink to a specific place
    in another document.  For example, I have a series of  documents that necessarily use technical terminology.  I also have a glossary in a separate document, which is rather long.  What I need to do, if possible, is to
    create a hyperlink where a term is used, that will go to the definition of that term in the glossary.
    Is this possible to do?

    We can use bookmark to make this, here are the steps:
    Insert a bookmark in the destination file.
    Open the file that you want to link from, and select the text or object you want to display as the hyperlink.
    Right-click and then click Hyperlink on the shortcut menu.
    Under Link to, click Existing File or Web Page.
    In the Look in box, click the down arrow, and navigate to and select the file that you want to link to.
    Click Bookmark, select the bookmark that you want, and then click
    You can also create a hyperlink by dragging the specific content from another Word document to the file that you want to link from.
    Open the document where you want to add a hyperlink.
    Open the destination document and select the text, graphic, or other item you want to go to.
    Right-click the selected item, drag it to the task bar and rest over the icon of the document to which you want to add a hyperlink.
    Release the right mouse button where you want the hyperlink to appear on the page, and then click
