Reply to: Cross-referencing between two books (with PDF output)

You might create a map that includes both “books”, but I suspect that is not what you want. You want two separate PDF documents and you want to be able to have one link to a portion of the other?

So, you need a feature provided by the PDF reader itself that will allow you to open to a specific page. Some PDF readers let you do that, including newer versions of Adobe “Reader” software. I would suggest searching the web for these terms “pdf link to specific page” to see what shows up. I have not reseached this too far, but the format supported by Adobe Reader seems to be straightforward.
