I'm using Adobe InDesign to make a PDF that will have links to pages within itself (e.g. a text on page 10 links to the text on page 32).

I'm using "New Hyperlink Destination" to create Text Anchors (so, for example, a text anchor "Footnote" on page 32). Then I link to this Text Anchor from the text on page 10 using Interactive -> New Hyperlink -> Text Anchor.

This all works fine, However, how I do make InDesign automatically insert page numbers for the appropriate Text Anchors? For instance, if Text Anchor "Footnote" changes its location from page 32 to page 40, how would I make InDesign reflect this change automatically and put in the appropriate page number? Is that at all possible actually?

  • @RadLexus thank you, it worked! if you want you could post it as an answer, so I can accept it, because it's not so obvious where to look for in the manual and what to look for :) – Aerodynamika Mar 18 '16 at 12:02

    Thanks, but I have only very limited experience with using them. But you could outline in an answer how you solved it - you can also 'accept' a self-answer. – usr2564301 Mar 18 '16 at 13:45
