I guess you should ask yourself why you are making the magazine PDF. If you want it to do everything a web page does... why not just make it a web page? (I admit I'm prejudiced against putting things on the web that a web browser won't display without calling up another program, because I've worked for years on weird OSes where any additional complication like launching another program might make the file too annoying to read. MOST people will be able to see the PDF without any problems but a few won't. So you always want to ask yourself "Does this format add enough value to the product to make up for the few people who won't be able to use it?".)
well more people can view a PDF than those that can view a Web page at it can be seen offline, more mobile devices now support PDF and again its still off line and easy to share offline too. Simple to download and reasonable small if set up right as well.
It's just a thought really, Like for example when reading comics or manga online i wish i could get the apps i can for my phone to download whole manga chapter or book rather then go page by page. But i would prefer it more if i could just download a full PDF or even a zipped file with the whole book and all its pages, simple, neat and organized and does not require ad much browsing, also nicer to print too, rather then going page by page like you would with a browser and less effort to customize a layout as i know very little about web design,
But you are asking about adding content that can't be seen offline. If the goal is to allow people to read it offline, then why worry about adding links to the PDF file? If the goal is to allow people to access online content like links, then why insist on it being a PDF file?
Well just cos i want it to be usable and easy to share Offline, no reason to not take advantage of online options. just means those wont work offline. Like you tube is great but much nicer to have the option to download and keep videos we like.
I've heard its pretty good for stuff like that but just wondering if it can do all the imbedded links and so on for links to reference to an article for example. or turn an ad into a link. guess it would be worth looking into.
