Applying Bookmarks

Once a template is applied, the bookmark tree structure displays in the template window.

Please note:

  • You only need to bookmark the first page of any multi‐page document.
  • If you use separator pages and you want to include them in PDF, be sure to include a <description> for each in order for repagination to work correctly.
  • Repagination should only be performed once.
    • Multiple edits and repagination events can cause the pages to be out of order. 
  • Repagination only works with the TicTie Calculate Set Bookmarks, it does not work with bookmarked pages added using Adobe Acrobat®.
  1. Click the arrow icon to expand a section. 
  2. Click the branch you wish to start on to highlight it. 
    • Use the up and down arrow keys to navigate through the tree structure.
    • Use the right and left arrow keys to expand and retract the categories.
  3. Select a <description> field to add a custom child bookmark (optional). 
    • Type the bookmark name into the Bookmark Text box. 
  4. Click Set Bookmark to assign the highlighted bookmark to the page displayed in Adobe Acrobat®.
    • After a bookmark is set you are automatically moved to the next page of the PDF.
    • Continue progressing through the source documents to bookmark the remaining pages. 
  5. Click Close once all bookmarks have been placed. 
  6. Click Repaginate to re-order the pages of the PDF to match the applied bookmarks.
