How to Add Bookmarks to PDF on Mac OS X?

Adding bookmarks to PDF files helps you remember where to read, highlight and review. They navigate readers by transporting them instantly to certain pages or segments within the documents. With AnyBizSoft PDF Editor for Mac, you can easily add bookmarks to PDF on Mac OS X (Snow Leopard, Lion included). Let's see how you can play with this function.

Add and delete PDF bookmarks
You can add or delete bookmarks in 2 ways.
1. To add PDF bookmarks on Mac, choose Edit > Bookmark > Add Bookmark in the top menu bar; to delete the existing bookmarks, select Edit > Bookmark > Remove Bookmark.

In a PDF file, you turn to certain page and add a bookmark in either method. This creates an instant access to this page anytime for you.
You can rename the bookmark by simply double-clicking on it and typing in its name.

Promote and demote PDF bookmarks
The function to promote and demote PDF bookmarks helps you to sort bookmarks in an organized way, thus you can fast find out the relationship between each individual bookmark. It's not hard, either.

If you want to attach a bookmark to the previous one, select it and choose Demote in the gear icon mentioned before. And so, in like manner, we can Promote it to the higher level. In this way, you make a better navigation than only adding bookmarks separately.

This is a simple index created in the bookmark list. Look. You can clearly see the structure of the PDF files, what it is talking about and the relationship between each point. This file contains only four pages, so maybe the advantage of creating such an index by adding bookmarks to PDF is not so obvious. But imagine you have a PDF book with no index created by the author, what a big disaster it is! With this handy bookmark function, you can handle it more leisurely.

To add PDF bookmarks on Mac with AnyBizSoft PDF Editor for Mac is quite a practical function, and the steps are far easier than my words can describe. Spend only 1/10 of the time I wrote this tutorial, you can use this function very efficiently.
