NeoBookPDF - Open to a Specific Page

Postby John Sherman » Sat Oct 29, 2005 11:11 am

Is there a way to open a PDF file to a specific page using NeoBookPDF? For example, if I open a PDF file that contains 50 pages, is it possible to display page 20 (rather than page 1) when the PDF file is first opened?

John:

from the help file ...
pdfGotoPage

Purpose: Display a specific page number.
Category: Acrobat PDF > Navigation
Syntax: pdfGotoPage “file name” "page num"

file name - The name of the PDF file.

page num - The number of the page you want to display.

Example: pdfGotoPage "[PubDir]NeoBook.pdf" "10"
... so you can immediately follow the pdfOpen command with the pdfGotoPage command.

Gaev,

Thank you.

I am new to NeoBook and I can't find an help file for NeoBookPDF. I don't think it is included in the NeoBookPDF plug-in installation file - any ideas on where I can get it?

Hello John,

If you installed the NeoBookPDF plugin from the downloadable EXE file on NeoSoftware's site, the help file will be in a location similar to the following:

C:\Program Files\NeoBook 5\PlugIns\NeoBookPDF\NeoBookPDF.hlp

Use Explorer to navigate to the ...\PlugIns\NeoBookPDF directory and double-click the HLP file. It should open in Window's help system.

John:

Once you find the file following Sam's instructions ... please note that when you open this file, the resulting window has an erroneous (confusing) title of NeoBookDB ... the same as NeoSoft's other free and excellent plug-in.

Sam Thanks,

I found it exactly where you said to look. Now I can get started with my project!

I'm not seeing that here. I wonder if you have an old version of the plug-in's help file?

Just downloaded and re-installed ... yes, this version is just fine ... time stamps on the help files were just about a month apart.
