TIP 95: Bookmarking a Layered Document

Acrobat lets you attach bookmarks to layers, which you can use in different ways. For example, you can distribute the same information using different languages without having to provide documents in different languages, or you can show customers samples in different colors in the same document. Use bookmarks in conjunction with layers to give readers control over what they see and print. Use actions to extend the function of a bookmark beyond just pointing to a location in your document.

Different Types of Layers

What you see in the Layers pane depends on how the original document was constructed and converted. In some cases, a document is converted with preserved layers, as in our example. In other cases, the document layers may be flattened or locked. In a flattened document you see a single layer like a regular PDF document. A locked document, on the other hand, displays the layers individually, but they can't be edited in any way.
