TIP 104: Creating Bookmarks in a Source Document

The PDFMaker lets you assign bookmarks in Microsoft Office programs quickly and easily if the source document is constructed properly using styles or headings. However, if you aren't that well versed in the source document's program, you may find the process of converting headings or styles to bookmarks a bit confusing—and your results will be less than optimal.

Show Them What You've Got

Once you convert the document, you have to change some settings in Acrobat so that your readers see your bookmarks when they view the document. Open the document in Acrobat and click the Bookmarks tab on the Navigation pane to open the Bookmarks pane. Resize the pane by dragging the bar at the right of the pane.

If the bookmarks are long, click the Options button on the pane and choose Wrap Long Bookmarks. To create the display you want your users to see when they open the document, you can collapse or expand the bookmarks. Then choose File > Document Properties > Initial View to set options on how the document will look when it opens. Click the Show pull-down list in the Document Options section at the top of the dialog and choose Bookmarks Panel and Page. Then, click OK to close the dialog.

Save the document. The next time it is opened, it displays page 1 complete with bookmarks.
