Hi,

I have a simple question:

When creating a PDF document from MS word, how can I also create a bookmark (like an index of headings) for the PDF?...some PDFs have a bookmark section which lists all the sections which can be clicked. how is this created for the PDF?

Is this bookmark possible to create for an existed PDFs?

Thanks

In Word, you need to use the PDFMaker function (the PDF button on the toolbar) and not the Adobe PDF printer to create your documents. In the "Adobe PDF" menu in Acrobat, select the "Change Conversion Settings" item. Go to the "Bookmarks" tab and select "Convert Word Headings to Bookmarks" (which should be checked by default). If you now use headings in your document, they should automatically be converted to bookmarks.

Yes, you can add bookmarks to existing documents. Just open the bookmarks tab in Acrobat and go to the Options menu (right above the bookmarks pane) and select to create a new bookmark.
