we have developed extensive user documentation (400+ pages and 100+ page pdf documents) and installation guides (5 pdf documents @ 40+ pages each) for our products and I would like to be able to get to specific content in these documents directly from a confluence page with a single click (instead of opening the PDF, finding the TOC, finding the topic of interest and following the TOC link to the appropriate page). I can link to the whole documents and open them easily but linking to specific content in these documents would be an ease of use enhancement.
Unfortunately I think this is impossible. I am looking around but the only way to do this in the past has been to rely on a Adobe Reader syntax of
#page=4 appended to the PDF hosted via a webserver. This is not the way confluence is rendering PDFs so even if that was possible still ( don't think it works anymore, perhaps Adobe deprecated it?) Confluence wouldn't be able to access it.

I have recently created a feature request for this, due to the last one being closed since there wasn't a lot of activity on it in terms of customer interest and votes.
Here's the feature:
