Create PDF Named Destinations on the Fly

PDF Destinator is an ideal tool for large technical manuals, dissertations and e-books

PDF Destinator is an Acrobat ® plug-in that converts PDF document bookmarks to PDF named destinations and vice versa. You can create PDF named destinations from bookmarks, links and pages, validate named destinations, export to Excel and use Acrobat ® actions and batch sequences .

Creating named destinations manually is very time consuming. PDF Destinator plug-in for Acrobat ® is an ideal tool for large technical manuals, dissertations, reports and e-books. Named destinations work like named anchor tags inside a HTML document, but they can be used as targets for links, PDF form

fields and bookmarks as well, that makes it extremely valuable for professional PDF authors. When using named destinations, you can create links that go to specific content rather than a page number. PDF named destinations make PDF content accessible worldwide — to locate information directly from the source documents, not just open the PDF at the first page. It is useful if the document is altered significantly. If you edit the source document and the pagination of the document changes, the cross-reference is no longer accurate, but the PDF document is still accessible by named destinations. The plug-in is available for Windows and Mac OS X. Read here more how to create PDF named destinations.

The tool works fine and one just wonders that it is not standard in Acrobat!

Personally, I see your work saving me about 20 hours of work immediately, and untold hours in the future.
Joe Pellegrino, PhD — Georgia Southern University, USA

We want to tell you the software works perfectly with no errors or problems at all. We have made named destinations from bookmarks many times in our development of pdf files with pdfs of many hundreds of pages and it was a joy with your software. Without your software to make the named destinations from our bookmarks we could not make our research tool possible.
Gauri Pinto — Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, India
