Topic: Linking multiple pdf files to a master index
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 145496

I need to be able to link (approximately 40) separate pdf files to a master (bookmark list). In other words I want to have a file called "index.pdf" that contains a complete index of bookmarks (shown in the left side navigation window) and a title page shown in the document (right side) window. As the bookmarks are selected, each of these separate pdf files are displayed in the existing document window. I want the bookmarks (navigation pane) to display all the time, while the contents of the document window change depending on what bookmark is selected. I do not want another window to open to display the selected bookmark file.

Unfortunately Adobe's technical support says Adobe Acrobat 6 Standard cannot do this task (and it seems like a simple thing to be able to do). Does anyone know if other versions of Acrobat, another software package, a Java script or another work-around can do what I need? One other requirement, the completed document must be viewable in Acrobat 5.0 (and above) with the same viewing properties as noted above. Any suggestions?

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
