Desktop publishing has come a long way in recent years. There certainly is a great deal we all can do from our personal computers, from page layouts, to generating publications to even digitizing them for viewing on all devices.
To self-publish is becoming common practice as technologies allow businesses, organizations and individuals to produce high quality typographical and image rich media comparable to traditional printing methods. If your work is good enough for printing, it is also recommended by marketers to share it digitally too. As an asset, its almost waste not too.
With your digital version many interactive elements can be added. Adding a table of contents that has live links to jump to pages is something our customers frequently use. It’s a feature that comes with the 3D Issue software and is easy to utilize.
If you are a desktop publisher and you have created a publication, save it a PDF. Or perhaps your designer, editor and creative team have created the publication, either way you are ready to add this neat feature.
Click on the image below to see a sample table of contents:
You can have a look at the video tutorial below detailing step by step how to add “jump to page links” to your table of contents. You can even add sound as someone hovers their mouse over the area, it is a way to giving you further options to alert your readers to “calls to actions” within your publications.
For an even more advanced table of contents for a larger publication you have the option which we outline in this video tutorial below to have the table of contents appear in the appearance panel where it can be accessed by the reader for ease of navigation through the publication.
