Acrobat Plug-ins

Creating an electronic document in PDF format? Want an index that is fully hypertext linked so the reader can just click on a page number and jump to the correct corresponding page? With Sonar Bookends Activate you can do that, as well as link the table of contents, e-mail addresses, web addresses (URLs), figure and table references ("see figure 6"), and page references ("continued on page 46"). The table of contents can be used to automatically generate bookmarks. Sonar Bookends Activate can do all of these things in seconds, saving you hours of labor each time you generate a new PDF! A free demo can be downloaded so you can try these features on your own documents.
