Bookmark sublists under many conditions export out of order.
I created a list of examples of where things work and where they don’t. These are PDF files. Here is a code a came up with as I found more and more variations affecting behavior. All PDF files were made from new documents in Publisher. I never reused or deleted info on a single document.
On a Mac, green = tag “Yes” where export is ok. Orange = tag “No” where export is out of order.
Cl = Changing Letter
Cn = Changing Number
L1 = one letter
L2 = two letters
+ = separate groups groups of letters or numbers
A> = all lowercase
RL = random letters
For example: L4 A> + Cn = Four letters in lower case, space, changing number like camp 1
The PDFs show the order of of text and bookmarks in the file. The bookmarks show how the bookmarks exported.
A letter, space, and number export fine. A letter next to a number does not or
A # exports fine A# does not.
A# does not export but put a word in all caps before and “WORD A#” exports. However
a three letter word beginning with a capital letter does not… “Word A#” does not export. However
an eight letter word beginning with a capital letter does export… “Bookmark A#” exports without error…..Oh boy, just discovered “Wordword A#”
AB# exports but ab# does not. So capital letters definitely change things.
You may find it helpful to search documents ending in examples with a letter and changing number. For example search the folder for “L1-Cn”.
