I know this is windows xp newsgroup and that this doesn't exactly apply to
this newsgroup. But I figure a majority of users here have adobe 5.0. reader
and maybe one of you can help me.

My question is if you a pdf docuement, with no pre-existing bookmarks, how
do you create a new bookmark?

I see plenty of bookmark making at on google searches at corporate accounts
that state :

"1. Click the Bookmarks tab in the navigation panel to bring the Bookmarks
palette to the front."

Fine I can do that


"2. Click the bookmark under which you want to place the new bookmark. If
you don’t select a bookmark, the new bookmark is automatically added at the
end of the list. If you have no bookmarks yet defined the new bookmark will
be added at the top of the panel."

What bookmark are they refering to ? I have a blank page bookmark section.
Then if I don't have one they say a new bookmark is defined (really how?)


"3. Use the Next Page and Previous Page arrows on the command bar to
navigate to the destination in the PDF document to which you want the
bookmark to link."

I do have next page and previous page but what is it linking to?

"4. Modify the view so it directs the reader’s attention to the correct
information. You should highlight/select the text you wish to use for the
bookmark label (i.e. chapter or section heading). In order to
highlight/select text you must be using the Text Select Tool fromthe Acrobat
toolbar."

Fine I can highligh text in the text window side but how to I get it into
the bookmark area.

Hope one of you can help me with this. Thanks

You cannot do that with Adobe 5.0 Reader. You need Adobe Acrobat 5.0 or
6.0. (The full version, not the free reader)
