That is one big file.
Sure this could get compressed somehow?

It's 2 files. One is 120ish other is 90ish. The smaller doesn't have hyperlinks and probably is more optimized.

The smaller one will get hyperlinks in the next pass.

Would it be possible to bookmark these? the hyperlinks are all well and good, but as a person who's been using gaming books as PDFs for a decade, bookmarks are much better for reference. It's pretty much like having the table of contents always available in one button push.

I'd do it myself even, but your PDFs are locked, preventing me adding that sort of thing without unlocking them.

What do you mean exactly- Can you describe the functionality you are looking for?

this is an example from The Strange RPG. The Table of Contents (on the right) is all hyperlinked (even though they don't have boxes around them like in the Denizens ToC). If I click on those, they go to the page. This particularly text happens to be hyperlinked throughout, so at various points you can clock on a word and it takes you to a page about that word

However, check out the left. That whole left frame - those are bookmarks. Same thing, but they aren't in the text itself. Still attached to the PDF (so they work in multiple programs) but you don't have to be on the page with the Table of Contents to USE the table of contents (as done up by the Bookmarks).

I (and lots of others) used these extensively on tablets and on desktops. Much easier to navigate to where you want if you can hit the bookmark button, get an extra window up with the ToC, and move to the next spot. Faster than Search, faster than scrolling back to the beginning.

Normally, doing that up takes me a couple of hours on a PDF, depending on the depth. Something like FotN with a lot of powers and a desire to bookmark those probably takes all of that (accomplished when the child is in bed and with an old fashioned) Something lighter (like Marvel Heroic) might only take half an hour.

oh yeah, having pdf-bookmarks (or being allowed to add them) would be great !
(if there is time to implement that, of course)

Not in a numbers format yet, but Andrew said:

If you can give the PDF a good once-over it'll get us a lot closer to print. :) The problem with reading your own manuscript 200 times is that your brain sees what it wants to see (stuff as it should be), so you stop seeing errors. I need our 5-star proof readers to hit this thing with all you got this weekend and hopefully nothing falls apart and we're good for print.


So, I guess, "Soon (TM)" 8-)
