Hi Charles,


I have seen this over the years and can confirm what you are seeing. If you
save the book as a MIF file, you can see the bookmark settings, but they are
not exposed programmatically. In the past, I have used a brute force
approach where I will use a script to save the .book file as MIF and then
correct the settings in the MIF file then resave it as a .book file. It has
been awhile, but I am pretty sure that it worked. Please let me know if you
have any questions or comments. Thank you very much.

Subject: Book Print Settings (non) persistence


Hello all,


I have a collection of print-to-file books used to create custom PDFs from a
large set of primary book files.  Each of these print-to-file books must be
individually configured with its own custom bookmark settings.  The problem:
the print-book files always default to initial bookmark settings between
print jobs, apparently to the settings that existed when the books were
first created.  I have been unable to find a method to make the bookmark
settings "stick" from one use to the next.  This, then, requires an added
step in the workflow to re-do the settings every time, and creates an
ongoing opportunity to misconfigure the settings, requiring do-overs.  I'm
using Microtype's TimeSavers, so I haven't experimented with Save As PDF.


Is this known behavior ( or a possible bug)?  If so, has anyone found a
workaround that makes the book files keep their print settings between uses?

Thanks for your help,
