View Full Version : Manuals: Jump to TOC

Mr. Bowie is the most diligent user of hyperlinks of any technical writer I know. Every reference, index, and TOC item tends to easily link you right to where you are going. Makes the manuals tremendously usable.

I did notice, thought, that when reading manuals on my ipad or phone, I spend a LOT of time scrolling back to the TOC, and my mobile devices don't have a "jump to page" feature that I have found yet.

Maybe clicking on page numbers could take you back to the TOC?

I usually just hit Ctrl + Home followed by one or two Page Downs. (maybe that isn't helpful on an iPad) ...

Another VERY handy Acrobat trick, on a 'puter, at least, is the advanced find - CtrL + Shift + f.

I use the page thumbnails on the bottom of the iPad or iPhone when opened in iBook.
