Docbook Imagemap PDF

Post by Christian_B97 » Thu Jul 30, 2020 7:02 am

Hey,
I created an Imagemap on a SVG Image and linked to Sections. I want to Output a PDF but it seems the Rectangles i defined are not clickable. Is this Feature not supported with Docbook PDF?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Chris,

The DocBook to PDF transformation indeed does not seem to support image hotspots in PDFs. Maybe you can write on the docbook-apps users list:
https://docbook.org/help
There may be people there who have implemented such a solution.
For example for DITA XML to PDF, the publishing again does not support out of the box hotspots in PDF but there is an extra publishing plugin which adds this support by dynamically creating an SVG image which shows the original image plus the hotspots over it:
