How can I add bookmarks within a generated Index in FM2019?

In previous versions of FM, it was possible to add automatically bookmarks within a generated Index. This seems to be lost in the latest version.

I have a document that has an Index containing 77 pages in the current version, which I update almost daily. Until FM2019, I was able to have bookmarks that subdivided the Index alphabetically, which saved a lot of scrolling. Does anyone have a work around that could restore that facility??

Hi,

I just tested this, and this works.

What I did:

Create a sample document with some index markers.

Create an index and update the book.

Copy the GroupTitlesIX paragraph format to the first file in the book (so that it appears in the list of paragraphs) and update the book.

Then select all files in the book and open the PDF Setup dialog and move GroupTitlesIX to the list of paragraphs for PDF bookmarks.

Then update the book and create the PDF.

I checked whether the opion "Use Acrobat Distiller for PDF generation" made any difference. However, both worked.

I have FM 2019.0.3.603. However, I doubt whether this does not work in a previous version.

Best regards

Winfried
