Hyperlinking to another page in the document

EasyCatalog can insert hyperlinks that link to other pages in the document or, if the document is stored in an InDesign Book, to pages in other documents in the book.  The most common usage of this to produce contents or index pages that can link to the actual page in the document when the user clicks on an entry.

The first step is to update your panel so that each record knows which page it is placed on.  Further information on how to achieve this can be found in the Knowledge Base article ‘Creating an index‘.

EasyCatalog has a ‘Hyperlink’ field type.  When this is enabled, it’s possible to specify both the text that appears in the document and the destination hyperlink.  In the case of page hyperlinks, a special prefix must be used.

In this example, when this field is inserted into the document, the name of the chapter will be inserted into the document and a hyperlink to the page specified by the ‘Page’ field will be created.
