PDF supports this functionality, but there are no built-in hypertext markers in FrameMaker that will let you define it. Other than linking manually (and re-doing this whenever the PDF is updated), it is possible to use custom hypertext markers in the source FM file, in conjunction with TimeSavers + Embed shortcuts to embed PDFs (or other file types), as well as define links / bookmarks to the embedded items. Sample PDF produced this way (no post-creation steps in Acrobat) is available at: http://microtype.com/showcase/Embed/Main.pdf Shlomo Perets MicroType, http:// microtype.com <http://%20microtype.com> FrameMaker/Acrobat/Captivate training & consulting * FM-to-Acrobat TimeSavers/Assistants
