Tino – Thanks for your time, interest, and effort. Unfortunately, I failed to include in my original posting that I must produce _separate_ .pdf files. So, I still have the problem. After I print the book to separate files, I check a link while all the files are in [WatchedFolder] \ out. The links work great. Unfortunately, after I move “BEGIN_HERE.pdf” into its place and the other files into their place, the links don’t work. Please note that I’m posting this to the Frame-to-Acrobat list, too.

Well, I could see no problems within the files or in the pdf... (My files are mainly local, but I also copied the folder to an external drive for the test.) Just to make sure: If "TargetA" is one example for a named hyperlink-destination in file "targetA.fm" (and so on...), and "BEGIN" is the named destination in the file "BEGIN_HERE.fm", the link options look like this: Link from BEGIN_HERE.fm to the other files: gotolink ABC_DEF/targetA.fm:TargetA (...and so forth for B, C, and D) Link from targetA.fm to targetB.fm: gotolink targetB.fm:TargetB Link from targetA.fm back to BEGIN_HERE.fm: gotolink ..//BEGIN_HERE.fm:BEGIN I am enclosing my PDF, if you don't mind. Good luck... Tino H. Haida.

Here's how the files are arranged: NOTE: The .book file and all the target files are "children" of folder \Abc_Def. File BEGIN_HERE.fm is "sibling" of folder \Abc_Def and is to contain links to all four targets. Folder \Abc_Def File dir_Abc_Def.book File targetA.fm File targetB.fm File targetC.fm File targetD.fm File BEGIN_HERE.fm I moved File BEGIN_HERE.fm out of folder \Abc_Def because a recipient of the informational product (portable document format files) wants it that way. I am using a character tag to constrain both the newlinks and gotolinks to small amounts of text. Before I moved file BEGIN_HERE.fm out of folder \Abc_Def, crossreferences among all files worked flawlessly. My latest attempt has been to specify named destinations (for example, newlink dir_About.fm) and jumps to named destinations (for example, gotolink dir_About.fm). In the source .fm files, these jumps work only a small part of the time. In the deliverable .pdf files, they don't work at all.
