Is the .PDF file bookmarked and if not are there plans to make that happen in the future?

My iPad is at home and I couldn't remember if the table of contents had links or not...to busy whipping past that to get to the nifty bits I suppose.

Thanks!

My latest version (4th printing) has bookmarks, but it does not contain in-text hyperlinks.

That makes sense as I don't recall any throughout the text.

Changed the app I was using to read it and problem solved!

For anyone making the same mistake as me, the Adobe reader app does what you need (I was using GoodReader before).

GoodReader seems to be displaying the bookmarks just fine on my iPad Pro. (Though sadly, it appears the app might have been abandoned by the dev, with no communication or activity since early last fall. It's always been at the center of all my PDF activities! PDF Expert is a very good alternative).

After further investigation I found them, thanks Jon!

My iPad is getting old and slow when it comes to some larger files (Call of Cthulhu 7th ed, Dresden Files, etc.). How does the Pro model hold up to larger (100MB plus) files?

The Pro seems to be blazing fast with just about everything. (Faster than my desktop in fact for many things!)

Oh, that's going to suck if GoodReader goes away. I use that app daily.

In a Facebook post I was following, someone from the company finally responded after a number of months, stating they were answering support emails and still in business. (They didn't answer the one question I sent, and some things like Dropbox syncing were apparently deep-sixed by iOS 10.3)

Still it seems very strange they would essentially go completely dark for six months. As you mentioned, Goodreader is a core app for many, many users, and one would think a healthy company would be interacting with such a devoted fan base. I've been exploring PDF Expert as a potential replacement, and it's pretty good. (Though I can't get my local shares to work, which is actually a pretty big roadblock for my normal workflow).

Despite the glories of the printed adventures, I still do 90% of my DCC reading/editing using PDF's on my iPad!
