I have a few PDFs that I want to put on a CD, and have autorun open a
PDF table of contents. The problem I'm having is that Adobe won't let me
create a link to separate PDFs without including the full path to those
documents. And of course, those PDFs being somewhere other than on a CD
while I'm creating the links, the path to those files is no longer valid
once they're on a disc.

Does anyone know how I can edit a link path directly, to just have the
filename in the link? I haven't found any way to do it using Adobe.

Has Adobe always functioned this way? I'd swear I've done this sort of
thing in years past. Though, it could be HTML I'm remembering. I could
set-up the CD to use an HTML contents page, but I don't want the PDFs to
open in a browser, for those users who have theirs set to operate that
