Add Hyperlinks to Figures & Tables

You may already know that QuarkXPress can automatically create hyperlinks from a table of contents or index.* And perhaps you also know that Acrobat 8 can recognize URLs in a PDF file and convert them into hyperlinks.

But what about figure references, table references, page number references, or… if all you have is the PDF file? Then get Virginia Systems’ Sonar Bookends Activate. This $195 plug-in for Acrobat 6/7/8 uses patterns in the text to hyperlink all these kinds of references. They also have a free demo version.
