Regarding: problems creating a link to anything other than page 1 in a 2nd pdf

Having had to fiddle with these today, I am genuinely fascinated about how this almighty bug could have escaped to see the light of day*

Bad enough that when you want to do this you can't do it the nice old fashioned way, but to find that - after faithfully creating a named destination on page X of pdf #2 - a link in pdf #1 can't open it... sheesh

And what's with this thing whereby you CAN do it, but only if the PDF is opened in a new window (rather than existing one).

I really am scratching my head about how something this size got through (especially when you see the busloads of Q&A staffers named in the credits).


*Naturally I would not stoop so low as to suggest that the product was rushed out in order to meet the financial results deadline and that this was the cause.
