External File link to Specific Page Number

Is there a way to link to a particular location in a large external file?

I believe with HTML you can append #page=X to the end of the https pathway. Is there a way to do something similar with file:/// links?

This is a function of the software used to review the external file. For example, DevonThink can create page links inside PDF files, but Preview can’t.

When it’s supported, the syntax is typically something like “?page=4” at the end of the file link.


And looks like in Skim there’s an option in the Edit menu to “Copy URL.”

Thanks much!
