PDF Documents - Using Bookmarks

Acrobat Adobe Reader makes navigation in large PDF documents and files easier by using Bookmarks.  

Bookmarks reside in the Navigation Panel, one of the tabs along the left side of your document windows in Adobe Reader.  The bookmarks form a clickable table of contents.  Since bookmarks are added by the author, not all documents and files have bookmarks.  If you do not see the Bookmark tab in the Navigation Panel the file does not contain bookmarks.

When the Bookmarks tab is visible in the Navigation Panel:

  1.   Click the Bookmarks tab to open the Bookmarks navigation pane in Adobe Reader.  The bookmarks will be displayed.  For meeting notes and minutes the Bookmark name reflects the date of the meeting in the format MMDDYY.
  1. Click a bookmark.  Acrobat takes you to the location associated with that Bookmark. 

 

When the Navigation Panel is not visible:

  1. Click View on the Adobe Reader tool bar.
  2. Select Navigation Panels from the drop down.
  3. Select Bookmarks from the drop down.
  4. The Bookmark icon will be displayed in the Navigation pane.  Since bookmarks are added by the author, not all documents and files have bookmarks.  If you do not see the Bookmark tab in the Navigation panel the file does not contain bookmarks.

 

  1.   Click the Bookmarks tab to open the Bookmarks navigation pane in Adobe Reader.  The bookmarks will be displayed. The bookmarks will be displayed.  For meeting notes and minutes the Bookmark name reflects the date of the meeting in the format MMDDYY.
  1. Click a bookmark.  Acrobat takes you to the location associated with that Bookmark.
