Hook 2.2 is now available for download with: More deep PDF linking! Hyperlinks for use in iOS and iPadOS! Renaming of bookmarks! And many new and updated app-integrations, including with RStudio and Freeplane!
Using PDFpenPro 12 and Hook, you can now create deep links to PDFs. When you click on the deep link, Hook will open the PDF and PDFpenPro will scroll to the specific page and location to which it points!
You can even share deep links with anyone who has access to the same file, even if it’s on a different Mac! That means you no longer need to cite the page number and location of the document or copy and paste the text from the PDF.
Hyperlinks in Notes and Agile Tortoise Drafts
Hook to New > Apple Notes or
Hook to New > Drafts, Hook will insert a link back to the source. In the case of Drafts, Hook now applies the tag.
So if you sync your Apple Notes or Drafts to iPhone or iPad, you’ll be able to use those links – again, assuming the linked items are synced.
Renaming of bookmarks
When we introduced Hook 2.0, we disclosed that Hook is actually also a new kind of bookmark manager.
In Hook 2.2 we have introduced the ability to rename Hook’s bookmarks.

We’ve enabled you to link items to & from some other great apps!
- RStudio | Open source & professional software for data science teams - RStudio

Thank you to our friends at Smile for providing automation for deep PDF linking in PDFpenPro! This shows great respect for knowledge workers who work intensively and extensively with PDFs! Lawyers, researchers, developers and many others will rejoice.
