I am using CorelDraw X5 to create a PDF that uses bookmarks and links to navigate.
Is the bookmarks and links funtion of CorelDraw just unusable or is it just me??
Problem 1: I spent ages creating a range of bookmarks all over the document and then when I save and reopen, all the book marks are gone. This I found can be solved by closing and reopening the file. However it seems stupid to have to open the file twice every time...
Problem 2: --The worst problem -- I carefully create all the links to my bookmarks, save the file, then publish the pdf. I find the resulting PDF has its links all jumbled up and not going to the right places! I check my CorelDraw file (twice) and somehow the links have all messed themselves up and are now pointing the wrong bookmarks!
Help! I don't want to go fixing all my links just to have them get jumbled again...
I remember another similar thread http://community.coreldraw.com/forums/p/27601/151880.aspx#151880 and did some testing on the document attached to the original post.
I wasn't sure at the time whether the problem was specific to that document, but as you are saying the same it seems that PDF bookmarks are indeed completely broken in at least X5 and possibly X6 too.
Hmm, yes he had the same problem. It seems this is hopeless then... I might have to do what he did and try moving it to InDesign then (I hate inDesign!)
I have about 160 links in this document! I wish I'd seen that thread before I started making them.
What are the chances that Corel will make a bug fix for this in the future?
I havent specifically had this issue but I did notice a few other problems depending on the type of PDF I publish. Notice there are like 8 different types. When you select PUBLISH TO PDF notice under the file type there is a drop down menu with type of PDF. When I used WEB for example some stuff came out looking cleaner than when I used PREPRESS. Also note that when you use ARCHIVING you will get a HUGE document that is far from Portable as defined in the PDF(Portable Document File) name.
Im going to experiment with creating a marketing packet for my business and use Bookmarks and Links. If I discover any thing new with this over the next few weeks Ill stop back by this thread.
Links in CorelDRAW X5 are frustrating, even in simple files with three links only. The "Links and Bookmarks" docker keeps blinking when I hover over the links.
