PDF Link Indication



We have started to link our mockups and the links look nice in Mockups, but not in the PDF. There are two options: optimized for viewing and for printing. Both don’t work for me. I’d like the very same pinkish arrow I see in Mockups.

The pink areas (optimize for viewing) are too obtrusive.
The gray arrows (optimize for printing) are not detectable.

What do others think? Do you use linked mockups exported to PDF?



Hi Andi, we’ve actually gone back and forth on this a few times. Just to understand the issue, do you expect people will see the PDFs on a screen or be printed out?


I guess, I wasn’t clear on that.

We started linking the mockups so we can use them interactively (see my other comment on linking mockup pages between projects, exported as PDF).

So we need a more reluctant link indication in PDFs on screen.

Update: this is rather a “nice to have” than a “need to have”
