Chapter 6. Structuring PDF Documents > Creating and Viewing Bookmarks

Creating and Viewing Bookmarks

Most authors of multiple-page PDFs add bookmarks to their documents to provide the reader quick access to specific passages. But you can set up bookmarks to do more than just take the reader to a specific page in a document. You can also customize a bookmark to display a page at a certain magnification, and you can direct the bookmark to focus the reader's attention to a specific part of the page. Bookmarks can even take the reader to a page in a different Acrobat document, open a file in a different program, or play a multimedia file.

The most helpful kind of bookmarks reflect the structure of the document. Because it's possible to arrange bookmarks in hierarchies, you could construct a detailed table of contents out of bookmarks (see the Bookmarks palette of the Acrobat Help file for an outstanding example).
