How do I link to Pages of a PDF?

I have a PDF document uploaded and I want to create links on a wiki page that go to specific parts of the document. I cannot figure it out for the life of me. I have tried

in the URL:

...myDoc/.pdf#page=6
...myDoc/.pdf#pageContainer6

and in wiki syntax have tried:

[document|77|myDoc|page=6]
[document|77|myDoc|6]
Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You're right, it should be:

myDoc/.pdf#page=6

That's not working right now, and I think that's a bug / lack of a fully-tested feature. I'll look into enabling it.

Here are some interesting observations I've made about it. There are basically three ways I can access the file in browser:

(source): using the AWS link of the file

(pdfjs): .../Document/pdfjs/?file=[direct source link]

(site): .../Document/[doc number]/.pdf

#page=[page number]

works with the first two (source) and (pdfjs)

When refreshing the browser page the (pdfjs) and (site) save the last page number the document was on. With both of these open in separate tabs the "page" info of (pdfjs) overrides (site). Not sure how all of this works on the back-end but hope this helps with trouble shooting.

It would be a great feature to have a page input for document tags i.e.

[document|docname|page=6]
