Link to externe file
« on: September 04, 2019, 10:39:22 am »
Hi everyone,

I want to know if is possible the following thing into pdf generate with scribus :

Into the pdf list A you choose a thing.
The pdf complete the box B automatically according to A with a externe file.

I make if sentences into pdf box B but it's very long and if I need to update B information is easier to modifie the externe file and distribute to people who use the pdf.

Thanks you for your help

this doesn't sound possible with a .PDF file (Scribus or any other program) and might be better to ask Adobe if its possible, however, I could be wrong.

found this https://indesignsecrets.com/changing-layer-visibility-in-an-interactive-pdf.php
sounds like your looking for Interactive Layers, Click a box and a layer would pop up.
as to an external file and link would work to a new file, not sure it would show up in the same pdf
