Working with Bookmarks in Adobe Acrobat 9

Article Description

Getting around in a huge PDF document can take a lot of time. The Adobe Creative Team shows how to speed things up by using the bookmark feature in Acrobat 9 to create and organize bookmarks that give you quick-click access to the page you want.

Moving Bookmarks

After creating a bookmark, you can easily drag it to its proper place in the Bookmarks panel. You can move individual bookmarks or groups of bookmarks up and down in the list of bookmarks, and you can nest bookmarks.

For this example, we'll nest multiple bookmarks under the Contents bookmark.

  1. Ctrl-click (Windows) or Command-click (Mac OS) the desired bookmarks in the Bookmarks panel.
  2. Position the pointer on one of the selected bookmarks, hold down the mouse button, and drag the selected bookmarks up and under the target bookmark (the bookmark that you want to contain the nested bookmarks). When the arrow is below and to the right of the desired bookmark's icon, release the mouse button. In the example in Figure 6, we nested the bookmarks Company Overview, Features, A Look Inside, Schedule, Financial Data, and Conclusion under the Contents bookmark.
  3. Choose File > Save to save your work.
