Creating Bookmarks (Table of Contents)


With Smart PDF Editor Pro, you can create a table of contents or bookmarks (internal links) in a PDF document. Using these links, your readers will be able to easily access any part of a large document.

Click Bookmarks on the Tools tab. A new window will open prompting you to select a PDF file.

You can edit an existing table of contents or create a new one.

  • Creating a new bookmark
  • To create a new entry, click Add Bookmark. A new entry will appear and you will probably want to change its name. Just click on the new bookmark and type its new name.

    Next you need to set the bookmark to point to a particular page. Select the bookmark, and then in the Page box, type the number of the corresponding page, or adjust it using the small triangle buttons. Alternatively, use the arrow buttons under the built-in PDF viewer to find the page you need. Click Set to make the bookmark point to the selected page.

  • Mapping a bookmark to a page
  • To set a bookmark to point to a particular page, select the bookmark, and then in the Page box, type the number of the corresponding page, or adjust it using the small triangle buttons. Alternatively, use the arrow buttons under the built-in PDF viewer to find the page you need. Click Set to make the bookmark point to the selected page.

  • Rearranging bookmarks
  • You can drag a bookmark and drop it in a new location. Thus, you can rearrange your table of contents.

    If you want to place one bookmark hierarchically inside another, hold down the Shift key while dragging the bookmark.

    If you want to copy a bookmark, hold down the Ctrl key while dragging the bookmark.

  • Deleting Bookmarks
  • To delete a bookmark, select it and click Delete bookmark.

  • Renaming Bookmarks
  • To rename an existing bookmark, highlight it by single-clicking on it. Once highlighted, wait a few seconds and click the bookmark again. A box should appear surrounding its name and you will be able to rename it.

    Another option is to select the bookmark and then press F2.

    A third option would be to select the bookmark and then click Edit bookmark.

  • Finding a bookmark
  • In a large table of contents, it may be difficult to find a particular bookmark. Type part of the name of the bookmark in the Find bookmark box and click Find. Clicking Find repeatedly will iterate through all bookmarks that have that text as part of their names.

  • Saving the bookmarks (table of contents)
  • Click Save As to save the PDF with the new bookmarks.
