Hello KK Aw,

Welcome to our forums, and thanks for the question.
We do not have the bookmarks plug-in included in the help pages for the Editor, but we will do so shortly. In the mean time - please do give it a try - the menus and windows should be pretty self explanatory.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi htl graz gosting,

Thanks for the question - I don't believe that any Command Line manipulation of the bookmarks plugin is possible, but I would need to check with the Dev. Team on this. Unfortunately, it is still 12:30am where they are (Canadian West Coast). I will pass the question along and have one of my colleagues follow up.

Cheers,

High,
Not sure if I questioned the right way.
My tasks:
I got many pdfs from the internet about one subject. By going through the pages I would like to bookmark interesting pages and collect those bookmarks in one main pdf.
Though for the next step I just click on those bookmarks and and have all interesting pages at hand.
In the bookmark property there is the feaure ...Add>Goto a Page in Another document ... it works not really ... by clicking further on that bookmark, the other document is opened but not on the specified page.
If it would work it would be boring to bookmark in that way.. creating bookmarks by drag and drop would by my favorite :).

Another way would be, what I mentioned in my first request : use the bookmark plugin and >>>Create bookmarks fom text file
Not sure how the text file must be structured so the plugin can read it.
I used the keywords from the competitor....
http://www.evermap.com/AutoBookmark/Man ... xtFile.htm
... some command lines work... but this one not >>>Go to a page in another PDF,1, file://anotherpdf.pdf
Thanks for your engagment
Maximilian

Hello Maximilian,

Please make sure that you set the links up correctly (the default option is to open the first page, and you need to change that to the desired page from the right hand side menu of the window where you see the other document) - and they will work and open your other file on the desired page. However there is no quicker way I can think of that you can build up such a bookmarks/links directory file.

You can use regular expressions to automate the generation of bookmarks in the current document:
viewtopic.php?f=62&t=22965&p=88790&hilit=regular+expression#p88790

Stefan

Hi Stefan,
Thanks for that...
About the bookmark plugin:
>>>Generate bookmarks fom text file
Is there a docu available how the test file must be structured so the plugin can read it.
Which fields are available?
What does the "Action parameters separator"

Thanks
Maximilian

Hello Maximilian,

I don't have any documentation for that at hand - but will check with the devs and see if we can get you a sample to try out.

Hello Maximilian,
This feature will be somewhat updated in the next build and also there will be another feature - Export Bookmarks to Text File...

Meanwhile try to use this format.
For example, you have , as a field delimiter and ; as an actions parameter separator

Title, gotor:{filename; destination type (XYZ by default); page number}
Or, if you have named destinations, you can use:
Title, gotor:{filename; @DestinationName}

So, in your case, you will have something like:
Go to a page in another PDF, gotor:{C://anotherpdf.pdf; XYZ; 1}

Hello Maximilian,

The GoToR and already opened documents issue is passed to the appropriate developer, and we will check with him on the status later today as he is in our Canadian office.

As for the generation of bookmarks from text it's now updated and is easier to understand and use especially in pair with Bookmarks To Text (to see and understand the syntax) which is a new feature that will be available in the next build.

Regards,
Stefan
