For my researches, I review hundreds of pdf documents and I comment them while I keep some notes in Onenotes or Mindjet.

I would like a way to keep links toward specific pdf pages within my notes (the file:/// etc .pdf trick doesn't work for local files) without having to copy/clone my pdf to a specific directory.

Any suggestions?

Named destinations seems to be what you're looking for.

You can create them in Adobe Acrobat, and link to the PDF either using file:// or set up an HTTP server for the root directory for your PDFs, and use http:// to link to specific sections of the PDF.

Here's the link to the Named Destination section of the PDF spec.
