Smart pdf marker links - how does it work?

Mats_Knutsson

Example: I have a plan of a building with ten rooms. Each room has a room drawing.
I have detail markers on the plan as well as section and elevations.

When I export a combined pdf the markers work as links in the generated pdf much like BIMx internal links. I can click a detal from the plan and the corresponding detail drawing will open.
I don't know how this works from a technical point of view. Reason for this question is that I want to find a way to get this link behaviour with text in zone stamps.

In the zone stamp I have added the corresponding room drawing number but since the zone stamp is not a marker there is no link.

Is possible to solve this in some way?

Mats,
I think that the bookmark processing to create the link only works within markers, to do what you want I think the PDF export tool would need to be rewritten to add the functionality

I would assume that you would need to rewrite the Zone stamp/tool too in order to link it to other drawings as I would assume the exporter is picking up these drawing references.

Guess so. Gah. ArchiCAD needs this.

What sort of view is the 'room drawing'? You could place a linked marker instead of adding the text to the zone stamp as a workaround.

Hi Erwin,
The room drawing consists of interior elevations. I'll try modifying the elevation marker.
