Lesson 10. PDF Web page > Completing the hyperlink sources

Completing the hyperlink sources

You have already set up a hyperlink from page 1 to 2. Now you will finish hooking up the navigation controls by setting up the Page and Next Page buttons as sources on the other pages of the guide. Finally, you will add sources to the Help, Index, and Weblink pages from the Flora and Fauna master page.

  1. Go to page 3. Select the pointer tool, and select the right facing arrow graphic at the bottom left corner of the page. In the Hyperlinks palette, click the anchor icon for Montane Zone, and name the new source Lowland to Montane. Click OK.

  2. Go to page 4 and select the right facing arrow at the bottom left corner of this page. In the Hyperlinks palette, click the anchor icon for Subalpine Zone, and name the new source Montane to Subalpine. Click OK.

    Page 4 has both a Next Page and Previous Page button. You finished setting up the button to the next page, so now you will set up a button to the previous page by creating another source.

  3. On page 4, select the left-facing arrow. In the Hyperlinks palette, click the anchor icon for Lowland Forest, and name the new source Montane to Lowland. Click OK.

    At this point, you might notice that the right and left arrow sources for this page end up under different anchors, which can make it confusing to remember where to click to add a source. Just remember that the palette lists hyperlinks by anchor (destination). You always want to click on the anchor where you want the arrow to jump, not the anchor where the arrow is located.

    You might also notice that the anchors appear in the Hyperlinks palette in the same order in which they are added. This is an advantage of creating all the anchors first in the same order as the pages in the publication. Anchors are easier to work with when you add them to the Hyperlinks palette in an organized manner, because you cannot rearrange them.

  4. With the pointer tool still selected, continue setting up the Previous Page and Next Page arrows as sources on pages 5 and 6, as you did in the previous steps. When you create each source, remember to click the anchor icon for the anchor on the page where you want the source to jump.
