Table of Contents and Hyperlinks...
I'm currently using Adobe InDesign for the final layouts for some catalogs and price lists. I use Excel or Filemaker to maintain the data and then import into Indesign.
I'm thinking about switching to Filemaker solely for this. But I have these questions:
1. Can I easily create a Table of Contents and Indexes in Filemaker?
2. Can I have this Table of Contents be hyperlinked to sections throughout the books? (This part is easy in InDesign...it's everything else that's manual :)
3. When I export to PDF's, will these hyperlinks be maintained in the PDF?
FileMaker doesn't have built in tools for indexes and TOC's. You could design some that would work fairly well in FileMaker, but I can't think of a way to create hyperlinks that would work when the data is saved or printed to a PDF...
