In my long-form template, which is used for books that have a multiple-chapter format, the following PDFMark code puts the off-book bookmarks (bookmarks that point to another .pdf file in the same directory) at the top of the PDF bookmarks column, in order. In my short-form templates, these bookmarks appear at the bottom of the Bookmarks column.
Redacting for brevity the PDFMark statements that tell PostScript printers to pay no attention to the PDFMark code, the initial page and title view declarations, and the forcing of document properties, the germane code is as follows: % Creates X-Ref bookmarks first: [/Title (Manual) /Action /GoToR /File (<template>_man.pdf) /C [0 0 1] /F 2 /OUT pdfmark [/Title (User Guide) /Action /GoToR /File (<template>_ug.pdf) /C [0 0 1] /F 2 /OUT pdfmark [/Title (Release Notes) /Action /GoToR /File (<template>_rn.pdf) /C [0 0 1] /F 2 /OUT pdfmark (Where <template> is a variable for the common file name of the book.) On a long-form book (multiple document files, grouped by a .book file), the Bookmarks column thus appears as: Manual User Guide Release Notes Contents Preface Chapter 1, etc... However, when I use this code in a short-form document (with a single document file, no .book file), the bookmarks column places these at: ...Appendix Z Index Manual User Guide Release Notes While I can manually move these to the top where they belong, it's a needless pain in the neck, and should be something I can address automagically, this being the whole point of PDFMark. So...Any tips? Oh yes...I'm using FM 7.x on Windows XP > Acrobat Distiller 7.0. Thanks in advance, --William
