Disable 'Go to page' links in PDF

Asked by Luuk Perdaems on 2021-02-24

Hi,

I'm reading a lot of scientific papers myself, which contain a lot of in-text links to literature references and figures somewhere else in the same paper. I often accidentally click these links (which often refers me to the bottom of the paper) when I'm reading the text. Is there a way to disable these links?

Hello Luuk,

there is no option to disable internal links (only to disable their decoration using red rectangles). You should be able to return to the position you where reading by pressing Ctrl+Return though.

Best regards,
Adam

Ah, thanks! That option also helps a lot!
And thanks for this useful opensource app as well :)
