I have an interesting problem that I need help with. A client wants to be able to easily specify in a link which page of the PDF the browser goes to. Adobe has built this function in to 6.0 and later - simply append "#page=13" to your link as an anchor. How could I modify the link section of the TinyMCE insert link function to give me a simple text field to enter "13" (if I want page 13) and have it append the anchor? I have looked at sapphire/forms/HtmlEditorField.php, and I feel like a new TextField could be added like "HtmlEditorField.PDFPAGE" and then have the editor append the appropriate code to the URL. It would be REALLY nice to make it work like the "Anchor on this page" field, but instead of a dropdown box appearing, a text field would appear to input a page number.

It's pretty simple concept - just hard to explain.

Thoughts anyone?
