Hi people!

What I want to do:

I want to create an image in the first page like a book cover with a hyperlink to a bookmark in a page with others 3 images with bookmarks too.

What I have tried:

Well... I tried to import an image to the document, ok without problems, but I can't associate a hyperlink... I changed the approach and put a hyperlink, changing the "type" to a button and associate an image to this button. It showed me the correct layout in the document, but... When I export to a PDF the image does not appear on the page / button!!! Any idea???

LibreOffice version:

O.S.: Windows 10

I believe it's a very task...

Any help is welcome! Thanks in advance

Do not use an image button and do not use a image map, but use the picture itself. Open the properties dialog of the picture. Goto tab Hyperlink. Enter a hash sign # immediately followed by the name of your bookmark into the field URL. Save the file before export to PDF.

Export to PDF. For me it works in PDF without enabling "Export Bookmarks" or enabling the settings in dialog page "Links" in the export dialog. I don't know, whether they are needed in other scenarios or different purpose, try it out.
