AR# 746: Install: Online Help Hyperlinks do no work on workstation (sun, sparc, hp), Acrobat v1.0
Install: Online Help Hyperlinks do no work on workstation (sun, sparc, hp), Acrobat v1.0
When using Acrobat reader v1.0 (shipped with XACT 5.2) on a workstation platform (Sun Sparc, HP), the Hypertext Links to other pages do not work. For example, when looking at linkpage.pdf, double clicking on the hypertext to jump to another manual does not work.
Additionally, when performing searches using the Find command, only text from the current manual is found (ie, Find does not locate text from other PDF pages).
The problem is caused by a limitation in Acrobat v1.0, which is shipped on the workstation version of XACT step 5.2. It does not have the capability to create linked pages. As a result, the Hypertext links do not work. Due to this same limitation, the Find command used to locate text is limited to the current page loaded since Acrobat v1.0 is not capable of using links to search multiple PDF files.
The workaround is to manually select and open the desired PDF file.
