Hi, I have a set of HTML files which has links pointing to one another and also pointing to a set of PDF files.

Folder Structure

../HTML/*.html
../PDF/*.pdf
also
../PDF/SubFolder1/Sub1.1/*.pdf
../PDF/SubFolder1/Sub1.2/*.pdf

I would like to know, if its possible to convert and merge all these files into one single PDF and have the newly converted HTML files retain their link destination to the various PDF files and HTML files.

This task is possible with the Acrobat Professional tool, where in we select Create PDF from web page and select the option to get Entire Site, so this way all the HTML files and their link destination files (i.e. other HTML files and PDF files) are included in the newly created single PDF File.

I have tried using iText, but it does not retain the link destinations correctly, in that it still thinks the link is a web link instead of a normal pdf bookmark or a pdf link. Any help from you would be really appreciated, Thank you.

Regards,
Amar Mahtani
