Detect bookmarks: check this box and the document will be parsed and if certain text blocks match the formatting defined as a criteria for detection when printing, they will be converted to PDF bookmarks.

Bookmarks configuration

Bookmarks: enables you to select a predefined bookmarks preset or use a custom one. You can add new or manage those by clicking on New/Manage.

Add root bookmarks: a root (parent) bookmark level will be added and the rest of the defined bookmarks shows as child entries for this level.

Name: you can manually type a name for root bookmark in the Name field or use Macro to auto name the bookmark.

To auto assign different names for each root bookmark when merging multiple documents in one PDF, you can use following macros in the Name field and choose the Style and Color for root bookmarks:

· [N] - The name of the document being converted
· [T] - The title of the document as defined in the Document section
· [B] - The subject of the document as defined in the Document section
· [A] - The author of the document as defined in the Document section

· [Y] - Year in the format YYYY
· [M] - Month in the format MM
· [D] - Day in the format DD
· [HIS] - time in the format hhmmss (hour, minute, second)
· [H] - Hour in the format hh
· [I] - Minute in the format mm
· [S] - Second in the format ss
· [W] - Workstation
· [U] - User name

Allow multiline bookmarks: you can choose to allow the detection of bookmarks placed on consecutive lines in a PDF file. If you leave this check box unchecked, such bookmarks will be detected as different ones.

Match bookmarks regardless of level: in case two consecutive detected bookmarks don't have consecutive levels, some intermediary "dummy" nodes will be placed between them, in order to keep hierarchy visible.

Use levels: this value signifies the number of defined bookmarks which will be taken into consideration when generating the PDF file.

Open to level: this value signifies the number of opened bookmarks in the bookmark layout of the generated PDF file.

Headings: the list-view contains information for all the definitions of the current bookmarks like Name, Description and Heading level. You can Add, Copy or Remove a definition.

Detection: this section enables you to set formatting rules that will be used to detect the bookmarks. You can choose one or more of the next detection options like Font, Size, Size margin, Style and Color.

Detection preview: illustrates the appearance of the current definition, accordingly to the detection options that are enabled.

Display: this section enables you to set how the detected bookmarks will be formatted and displayed in the PDF. You can choose the Style and Color for display.
