I find myself recieving rather large documents without tables of contents, bookmarks, or page numbers for individual documents. After accessing the documents and creating bookmarks for each individual document, I would like to generate a report that includes the Bookmark and the Page Number for the Bookmark.
I have noticed several different codes online that may help in accomplishing this. However, they appear to be for older version of Adobe and/or have a syntax error.
Any help is appreciated. I cannot justify an additional $1,000 to $5,000 a year just to export bookmark information.
What scripts have you found?
The correct scripts will work in Adobe Acrobat DC.
Which one is the correct one?
The script of Dimitri works.
I wrote that 🙂 But the download at the Acrobat User's Actions exchange (which I also wrote) is better.
I've developed a couple of (paid-for) tools that allow you to do that. See:
They are all for a one-time fee, and under $100.
Hi Thom, May I know how to extract page numbers of all the bookmarks?
Why yes, of course. Download the scripts at either of the provided links and then exmine the code.
Hi Thom, I tried to download and able to use it. However, page numbers are not showing when I run the create bookmark report.
That script was for Acrobat 9 or 10. It may need some updating. But it also works best when all the bookmarks goto pages in the same document, and don't do any non-navigation actions. Are any errors listed in the Console Window?
I'll check it out later and see if anything needs to be fixed.
Hi Thom, I'm currently using Adobe Acrobat Pro. There is no error message. It can successfully list all the bookmarks but no page number data.
I checked the code for the bookmark report action and it does not collect the page numbers for the bookmarks. It only lists the names and hierarchies.
