Confluence 5, link to a specific PDF page of an attachment from another space


I would like to know how to create a link to a specific page of a PDF from another space (makes me smile to write this).

I found how to link to an attachment; but can't seem to figure out how to access another page/space. If I link to the PDF with the "#page" command, it won't open to the proper page...

Highlight the text you want to be a link anc click the insert link button int the toolbar. Then use the search option and search for the attachment you want to link to. Make sure the dropdown says "All Spaces".

Thank you Davin

It wasn't working when I tried but I guess when the indexer got through, it was able to be found.....

If you just uploaded the PDF then it will take a while. The indexer can take a few minutes to get the recently uploaded attachments.

This is still partly answered. I still can't access a specific page from the PDF.

Ah, linking to a specific page. Didn't see that part in the original question. That part unfortunately is not possible.
