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.
Someone else asked this question and received no answer – https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/214112
The feature request is logged below, but was closed as it is not in our upcoming roadmap:
My recommendation would be to comment on the request with your feedback and usage case, because if we can get more eyes on it, we could help increase the chance that it might be implemented in the future.
Thank you for your understanding!
