Link to a file attachment

You can direct users to a PDF attachment by creating a link in the parent PDF document that jumps to the attachment.

Note: Don’t confuse file attachments with files that can be opened from a link. Linked documents may be stored in different locations; file attachments are always saved with the PDF.
  1. Open a PDF that contains a PDF file attachment.
  2. Go to where you want to create a link. If that location is in the file attachment, click the Attachments button in the navigation pane, select the file attachment, and click Open.
  3. Choose Tools > Content > Link, and select the area for the link.
  4. In the Create Link dialog box, set the link appearance, select Go To A Page View, and then click Next.
  5. Set the page number and view magnification you want, either in the parent PDF document or in the file attachment, and then click Set Link.
