Hello, I have a pdf with 500 pg, with 100 markers created with the names and surnames that appear ...

My question is when I click on "PEREZ JUAN" goes to the page where it is, now it will be possible to "HIGHLIGHT THE PEREZ JUAN PLABRA" so that it is easier to locate where it is in the page?

looked like when I go to the "search" tool and highlights the word found

It's possible, but it would require attaching a script to each bookmark.

The problem with doing that (using a script) is that it overwrites any

existing command that's attached to it, so you would basically need to

re-do the entire bookmarks tree to achieve it. Also, the script would need

to "un-highlight" any other bookmarks, which might cause some delays in

using it. In short, I don't think it's worth the effort.

The script will have to be custom-made. It's not something that exists and you can just download and install... Also, I never said it can't be done, just that it's not a simple task.

Sorry, I think I misunderstood what you wanted to achieve. I thought you meant you wanted to highlight the bookmark itself, but reading it again I see that you want to highlight the text on the page the bookmark refers to. That's possible, too, although it will require quite a bit of setting-up, as a bookmark doesn't actually point to specific text, just to a certain view of the page.
