PDF Document Management 8: Add and Edit PDF Bookmark

A PDF Bookmark is a type of link with representative text on the Bookmarks panel in the navigation pane. Each bookmark goes to a different view or page in the document.

This function can let you create new PDF bookmark from scratch, read your PDF bookmarks into PDFill for editing, import a XML Text file into PDFill, export PDF bookmarks into a XML Text file and export the PDF bookmark's title into a text file.

Here are the steps on how to create or edit PDF Bookmark:

Choose Document Menu > Bookmark

 

 

or click Bookmark  Button in the Document Toolbar.

There are two batch commands for bookmark operation to import or export XML. XML is just a text File. You can edit it by WordPad.

Export PDF's Bookmark into a XML file
"C:\Program Files\PlotSoft\PDFill\PDFill.exe" EXPORT BOOKMARK Input.pdf Output.xml
