Setting Bookmark Location

A bookmarks location is where the user will be taken within the document when clicked. By default this will be the exact same view and scale set when the bookmark was created. The destination can easily be changed if needed after being created.

How to Set a Bookmark Location

A bookmark's location can be changed using one of the following methods below:

Using Set Destination

  1. Navigate to the location in the document that you want the bookmark to go to
  2. Then Right-click (Mac: Ctrl + Click) on the bookmark in the bookmark tree and select Set Destination.
    • Note:  This will remove any actions currently associated with the bookmark and replace them with a Go To Page action for the current page and view.

    Note: A bookmark destination is just the location stored within the bookmark. This is different then a PDF Destination which is a named end point (similar to an anchor in HTML) stored within the page.

Using the Properties Dialog

  1. Right click (Mac: Ctrl + Click) on the bookmark you wish to edit and choose Properties in the mouse menu.
  2. Click on the Edit button below the Bookmark Actions section
  3. Enter the details for the destination you would like the bookmark to go to
    • Page
      • Number - the page number of the document to link to
      • Zoom - the zoom to use if needed
        • Percent: only available if Custom is selected in Zoom
    • Percent - The zoom level for Custom zoom setting
    • Set Visually - Allows you to set the destination by navigating to a point in the document. Once set the bookmark will go to the exact location and zoom level in the document that is set when using this function.
    • Destination - choose from a named Destination already set within the PDF
  4. Click OK to apply the changes
