Creating Destinations

A Destination is a named end point (similar to an anchor in HTML) stored within the pages of the PDF document. Destinations allow you to set navigation locations that can be used either within the same PDF or across multiple PDFs. Using a destination is often recommended because, unlike a Bookmark or Hyperlink to a specific page, destinations are not affected by the addition or deletion of pages within the document.

How to Create a Destination

To create a destination with the PDF follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Destinations pane by clicking on the button on the left side of the Xodo PDF Studio window
  2. Set the Zoom and page location to the way you want it on the screen
  3. Click on the Create Destination button
  4. Give the destination a name and Click OK to apply the changes
  • Note: Using a name that does not have any spaces makes it easier to link to afterwards

Once the destination has been created it can now be linked to from either a Bookmark or Hyperlink.
