links don't work

I want to link an object on the 1st page of my InDesign document so that it jumps down to an object I've made on the 4th page of my InDesign document. I've done seemingly every possible combination of links and hotspots and object ids and I cannot for the life of me get anything to work. When I push it out to my iPad it just does nothing, it's like it doesn't exist. None of the support pages have been able to solve the problem so help!

Hello Angela,

It is entirely possible to have a jumplink hotspot jump to a specific object, this is done by inputing "//<Object ID>" into the jumplink URL field, <Object ID> being replaced by the Object ID of the specific object you want to jump to.

If you continue to have trouble with this I'd be happy to take a look at a couple of your InDesign vertical files to see if I can show you how to set it up.

Yeah, to my knowledge that's exactly what I'm doing and it's still not working. I've had others look at it too and nothing. I'm sure it's just something really simple that I'm missing. I've attached my file. I want to circle/plus sign to be a button that takes you down to the 4th page. I've been using the top object on that page as the destination but it would be even better if it could just go down to page 4 in general.

My apologies for the mis-interpretation.  If you are jumping a specific location to another vertical, you will use:

/ <vertical ID> / <Object ID> 

eg.  /belleisle/a1 would be the url jumplink to the vertical file you provided.

I changed all of this and it still does not work. When I review it, I don't even think it recognizes that that's a clickable area. All that pops up is the mag+ reviewer menu stuff. Is there something else that I'm missing?

Angela,

I'll have to look at another file to see how you are setting it up.  Could you send me another vertical file that is tied to the shinola_digitalmagazine_belleisle.indd file (one that you are trying to setup this jumplink to)?
