Hi,

This is my first message on the board 🙂

I work with very large PDF files (i.e 2000 pages, 700 bookmarks on 5 or 6 levels!) and I'm looking for a script (Acrobat 9 Pro) allowing to expand/collapse all the bookmarks in a PDF file.

Thanks in advance for your valuable help,

Cheers

Antonella

But they want to expand/collapse all bookmarks, not just the top-level ones...

With the top level root bookmark highlighted you can use:

*   to expand all bookmarks (multiple layers deep)

/   to collapse all bookmarks

No script needed, click on the top level bookmark and press the / key to collapse all bookmarks.  You can then use the right arrow key to expand just the next level of bookmarks.  You can then use the left arrow key to collapse that level of bookmarks.

To expand all bookmarks below any given bookmark, press the * key.  The / key also works to collapse all bookmarks below any given bookmark.
