Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Date: May 2016.
Version: 1.1.

Navigator offers access to PDF features such as:
anchors, outlines (bookmarks), links and actions, embedded files, and raw PDF
code. It works with all formats (some limitations in ConTeXt), and with
pdfTeX, LuaTeX and XeTeX (i.e.  xdvipdfmx), trying to implement a similar
behavior between those drivers.

It requires texapi and YaX, both v.1.03.

Relevant information can be found in navigator-doc.pdf.

The files in this distribution are:

navigator.tex      The bulk of the code.
navigator.sty      A wrapper file for LaTeX.
t-navigator.tex    A wrapper file for ConTeXt.
navigator-doc.pdf  The manual.
navigator-doc.tex  The source of the manual.
Licensing of this package is covered by LPPL.

  • Doc­u­ment in­for­ma­tion and PDF viewer's dis­play (not in ConTeXt); and
