    I suppose that the tittle is not explaining what i am looking for so i ll explain it further. I have various pdfs (hundreds of them as a matter of fact) that are work related. Many topics/pages/chapters are analysed in deferent pdfs from different perspective.
    I want to create a file that will work as an index which will contains links to the different pdfs. For example lets say that i have subject "x" which can be found in page 26 in document A, page 10 in document B, page 451 and 43 in document C etc. I want to have 4 links in the "index" under X that will work as shortcuts to all these different documents and when i will click on these the pdf document to open in the particular page.

    Thanks in advance!

    Oh, I'd love an app like that. I'll be watching this thread.

    This can be done in DEVONthink. Select the desired text in a pdf viewed within DEVONthink, right clicking and selecting "Copy Page Link" and pasting it into an RTF document created in DT. You can then edit the link to say whatever you like. When you click on the link, it will bring up the desired page within the PDF.

    The developers have a fully functional limited time trial version which they will extend 30 days upon request.
