We have numerous large PDF files shared by hundreds of users through the Canvas LMS, which is backed by Box file storage.
Our PDF files are meticulously bookmarked by chapter and topic.
When one of our PDF files is viewed through a standard browser plugin, we can write a hyperlink to directly navigate to a specific bookmark (e.g. ...#nameddest=my-chapter)
This feature seems absent from the default PDF Box Previewer.
One can list a URL to a specific file on Canvas (e.g. my_course/files/34567), but the nameddest parameter fails (you are always dropped at the front page.)
The bookmarks within the PDF work fine inside the Box PDF previewer (e.g. the Table of Contents internal links), but we can't seem to devise a hyperlink which navigates directly to the named destination (bookmark.)
I've already read through everything returned by the search [PDF AND preview AND (bookmark OR link)]
If this is currently impossible, would someone please consider it as a futre feature enhancement?
