2. Managing a Collection > 17. Create Windows Shortcuts to Local PDF Pages

Create Windows Shortcuts to Local PDF Pages

Pinpoint and organize the essential data in your local PDF collection.

PDF files can hold so much information, yet Acrobat provides no convenient way to reference an individual PDF page outside of Acrobat. This makes it harder to organize a collection. To solve this problem, I developed an Acrobat plug-in that can create Windows shortcuts that open specific PDF pages. However, it works only after you add some special Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) messages to the PDF Open action. Use this plug-in to create Windows shortcuts to the PDF pages, sections, or chapters most useful to you. Name these shortcuts and organize them in folders just like Internet shortcuts.

Adobe Reader users should use [Hack #15] instead of this hack.
