I want to have text in one place/page, to tap on it and go to another place/page.

I'm new in iBooks Author, I've tried several options and I don't know how it works.

Does active mean live in the editor or active mean embedding links for eventual tapping on the iPad? – bmike Jan 28 '12 at 20:11

Its not possible, hopefully Apple will make the App functional in the future. You can only hyperlink to bookmarks within a project and you cant bookmark a page!

According to documentation:

  • Select the text you want to become a hyperlink.
  • If the Link inspector isn’t open, click Inspector in the toolbar and click the Link Inspector button.
  • In the Link inspector, click Hyperlink.
  • Select “Enable as a hyperlink.”
