    Table of Contents trouble

    Hi Publisher Forum, Not sure if this thread is still open or anybody still available to comment. OK so now that Publisher is a paid product I want to be sure about PDF bookmarks before I pass up on the introductory offer. So, nobody foresees Publisher being able to create a bookmark, meaning the links in the left pane that show the document's structure based on the TOC, it's still the case I suppose? I tested LibreOffice and it creates them from the TOC, so the feature can't be that difficult to implement, but I suppose Publisher is more for paper printing than digital publishing. I need to create manuals for monitor and tablet viewing only and the client wants bookmarks of course, not just a TOC at the start of the manual. If anybody has feedback or news on this then please send it along, and thanks in advance. Regards, Kevin

    Thanks your replies Oval and fde101, seems odd that Publisher doesn't work with bookmarks but I suppose it's goal is to create new documents only. This leaves me hanging as I need to update/improve existing pdf manuals and I can't just ditch their entire bookmark structure. Hummpffff! Regards, Kevin

    Table of Contents trouble

    Hi All I'm new to Publisher and having trouble with the TOC feature, I've opened a PDF that has bookmarks so shouldn't I see those bookmarks? Nothing in the TOC pane appears and I can't make any entries to start a TOC. I followed the advice of Old Bruce and Seneca by creating various styles, base paragraph character but still the menus in TOC editor are blank or greyed-out. I must be doing something wrong but can't figure out what. If the PDF already has bookmarks then at least I should be able to see and edit those, no? Thanks for any assistance and I hope this message gets posted, the first one seems to have disappeared! As a note, I'm trialing Affinity Designer and love it, I think I'll abandon Xara Designer and switch to this Designer, looks like it has a brighter future ahead of it, and I imagine I'll pick up Publisher when it's ready for sale.
