you require Bookmark creation for will be recognized – otherwise you could find that you have great
deal more bookmarks generated for your PDF than you intended – this will also have a potentially
large impact on the length of time your PDF files take to parse the content of the document and write
the PDF file!
3. Use Document Title as Bookmark Root: Unless you set aside Level 1 to JUST be a root, which is
wasteful, checking this will create a "Level 0" root using the document name that all the level 1's are
tied to. This creates a neater appearance in the Bookmarks tree.
4. Match Node Regardless of Level: PDF-XChange will parse the document looking for bookmarks
at all levels. Please always keep in mind that if, within a document, the first appearance of bookmark
text and style of a lower level is placed ahead of an upper level, it will not be recognized as a
bookmark (as it is not sequentially linked as expected within your predefined parameters).
However if you always require text matching the Font Style you have dictated to be regarded as a
bookmark – you should have this option turned on.
5. Display Mode:
When the viewer chooses to view bookmarks – this group of options dictates whether
bookmarks are displayed opened and expanded to reveal child node levels in the Bookmarks tree – or
whether all child levels will be closed and must be 'expanded' to view. Valid values are:
All Opened: Self-explanatory.
All Closed: Self-explanatory.
Defined by Item:
Select the 'State' at the bottom of the 'Display Options' – this sets the
Bookmarks open or closed state for a specific Bookmark entry – though setting a child entry as
open and the Parent itself Closed – will result in the entry only being open when the parent has
Opened Up to Level: Specify a numeric value that determines to what child level the
Bookmarks will be opened in the tree – Level 1 opens all the Top Level items, level 2 Opens the
top level and 1 child level – and so on.
6. Template: Displays the intended Bookmark tree. A new level may be added by clicking
the Add button under the Template. Clicking Remove removes the selected level from the tree,
AND ALL CHILD LEVELS beneath it as well!
7. Detection Options: For each Bookmark Level, you must select the text detection criteria for it. Note
that each detection criterion is optional, and only become active when the corresponding checkbox is
checked. However you must choose something! Also, the text must match ALL selected text detection
criteria to be a match.
1. Font The font name to check for. The default is Arial, but you may select another font. This is
really useful if you reserve a certain font just for headings.
2. Style This drop box determines which Style of text to use for the bookmarks. The valid values
are Regular, Bold, Italic, and Bold-Italic. Style and Size are the two most useful for detecting
N.B. Underline is NOT a selectable option!
3. Size The font size in points, with a small correction factor.
Note: Ensure you set the option box to the right of the 'Font Size' for +/- to 1.
This ensures that although most fonts are not rendered to exact sizes in the Windows GDI – if
you set a Font Size of say '12', small variations are matched and your bookmarks will appear
