It would be great to have <Page Link> attribute interactive in PDF (i.e. jumping to appropriate page when clicked)

Ah, now I see what's happening: you seem to actually click on the <Net Name> attribute, not on the <Page Link> one. Indeed that works (when "Link Net Names" is enabled in PDF output options). So my original request seems to be still valid (i.e. making <Page Link> interactive in PDF output). The thing is that I use page link symbol with <Page Link> attribute only (i.e. no <Net Name> attribute on the page link symbol).

I'm using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, 2015 Release, Version 2015.017.20050 and Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional version 8.1.0 and both operate the same.

The circuit diagram is output via CAM/Plot and Device PDF. When you open the resultant PDF and hover the mouse near the page link you should see the pointer change from an arrow to a hand when you hover near the attribute for the netname on the page link and click then Adobe Acrobat jumps to the other page link.

Well, I tried it in Acrobat Reader X and it doesn't work there for me. It also doesn't work in PDF-XChange, Foxit, Sumatra, Edge, Firefox. I tried doing CAM export to PDF with both "Link Net Names" enabled and disabled. What version of Adobe Reader it works for you in?

Hmmm... let me give it a deeper look as it is doesn't seem to work neither in PDF-XChange editor nor Microsoft Edge nor Firefox.

It already does this - at least in Adobe Acrobat.
