Creating a bookmark

5 posts in this topic

I have followed the instructions for creating a bookmark with PDFelement 6 Pro, but nothing works. I open the document, I go to the page where I want to insert a bookmark, I click "VIEW", then I click the bookmark icon.  AND NOTHING HAPPENS. I am given no options, there is no drop down screen, NOTHING. Interestingly, if I open a document that already has bookmarks in it, then when I click the bookmark icon, all of the bookmarks appear, and if I then right-click on a bookmark, a dropdown screen appears that gives me the option to insert a new bookmark.  But this does not happen when I am in a document that does not already have bookmarks.

Update: I just discovered that I can easily create bookmarks using PDFelement 5.  In PDFelement 6 Pro, I can add bookmarks to a document that already has them, but if the document doesn't have any bookmarks, I cannot add them.  This is sounding like a bug in version 6.

Hi eblawyer,

 

Are you using PDFelement for Mac? If you want to insert a bookmark, you can right-click in the page to popup the context menu, and you will find "Add Bookmark" menu item. (NOTE: We will fix a issue about this feature in coming 6.0.2. You'd better waiting for update.)

 

The bookmark icon in left navigation panel is only for swith the view mode such as page/bookmark/annotation etc. You cannot insert any bookmark by clicking it.

 

Thank you for your feedback.

I'm running PDFelement Pro 6.3.2.3149(2017116) under Mac High Sierra 10.13.1.  I can see and highlight the bookmark icon in the navigation pane, but can not add bookmarks. Reviewing the issue online, I've found several suggestions for how to do this, none of which have worked. It appears that a fix was anticipated for 6.0.2, but has it worked?

 

Adding bookmarks ought to simple. How does one do it using the current version of PDFelement Pro?

Hi Anastrophe,

 

After opening your PDF file in our Mac version program, please click the View button to display the panels. Then in the Bookmark Panel, you can control-click the blank area to choose Add Entry to add new bookmarks as you want.
