Allow users to create links to other PDFs
Thank you for implementing the creation of links to other parts of the same PDF or to web pages (added to beta channel on 19 Jan 2017).
The next step would be to implement links to specific parts of other PDFs. This was part of the original suggestion (which received a very large number of votes), but does not seem to have been created as a separate suggestion now that you have implemented the internal/web page links.
Linking to other PDFs would be extremely useful, since many projects consist of multiple documents that relate to each other.
Thanks for the feedback!
The reason why we did not include this capability is that the links created would break if the user moves the PDF to a different folder. This means we would receive many users complaints saying that “their links stopped working” or “there’s a bug in Xodo”. This extra capability would therefore be confusing and frustrating for some users, whereas we strive to keep Xodo simple and delightful to use.
Thanks for using Xodo and for taking the time to let us know how to make it even better.
I would be glad if this suggestion was accepted.
It was part of the original sugestion. I hope it be implanted too.
A good idea. Create links to others documents is very useful to students. It may improve the velocity that a subject is reached.
