PDF supports this functionality, but there are no built-in hypertext markers

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

with TimeSavers + Embed shortcuts to embed PDFs (or other file types), as

as define links / bookmarks to the embedded items. Sample PDF produced this 

way (no post-creation steps in Acrobat) is available at:
