周ese actions are supported by DPS with no additional settings
required. But whether you use buttons or hyperlinks, you must use the
Folio Overlays panel to set how URL hyperlinks behave.
Use the Hyperlink settings to specify whether a link opens in the app (folio) or in a browser.
Open in Folio:
By default, a website will open in the app, in an in-app browser,
where all links on the website are fully functional. With this option, the
user never leaves the app. To return to the app, the user simply taps the
Done button in the upper-left corner of the screen.
Open in Device Browser:
Choose this option if you want the user to be
taken to the device’s browser app, such as Safari on the iPad, when a link
is tapped. With this option selected, the user will exit the app and go to the
external browser. Always choose this option for email links, because you
always want the user’s email client to open to send a pre-addressed email.
When setting a link to iTunes or the Apple App Store, use the Open in
Device Browser option to avoid a Cannot Open Page error message.
Select the Ask First check box to specify that a prompt will appear,
requesting permission to exit the app. It’s usually a good idea to specify
this prompt, so the user knows what’s about to happen. Once the user
is in the browser app, the DPS app has been completely exited and the
app has to be re-opened.
Jump to another article
To create a hyperlink to jump to another article in your folio, use the
navto:// syntax. 周en specify the name of the article as it appears in the
Folio Builder panel, not as it appears in the Article Properties dialog box.
(Both are discussed in detail later in this chapter.) Add a page number if
you wish to link to a speciﬁc page in the article. When you’re linking to
a speciﬁc page in an article, keep in mind that the ﬁrst page in the docu-
ment is counted as page 0 (zero). So, for example, if you specify #3 in the
URL, the link will jump to page 4. A typical URL to link to another article
in your folio might be something like navto://articlename#3.
