Description Daniel Hudsky 2003-04-07 05:34:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
It would be usefull to publish an Acrobat Reader document where the pages 
actualy match what the index says. 
For example if you see 
12. Network Configuration .................... 83

one would expect that selecting (in the Acrobat Reader) Document > Go to Page, 
then typing in 83 would take me to page 83. Instead it takes me to page 67. I 
then have to forward my self to page 83 or simply assume that the decryption 
key for the pages is 16. So if I add 16 to the page that is listed in the 
index, I'd get 83 and I am at the right place. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhl-cg(EN)-9-Print-RHI (2003-02-20T01:08)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Guide
2.Go to index and pick a page
3.Select Document from the toolbar menu and Go To Page
4.Put in the number found in index and go.

Expected Results:  I should arive at page 87 if I put in page 87 at the Go To 
Page menu.

This isn't a bug in our PDFs. We restart the page numbers of the book at Chapter
1, which is common in books.
