I am playing around with TOC in Publisher and want to create a rather big PDF file with lots of pages which should be more accessible with bookmarks.

I created a very simple document to try this out. Just put a few pages with text and headings and a TOC. Works as expected, TOC is clickable in the PDF but the bookmarks are wrong. Several of my TOC entries are duplicated as bookmarks. If I look in the Anchors pallet, the problem is there, also. Although I can delete the double anchors there, they show up again when I update the TOC.

Any way to get a correct PDF?

Can you upload your sample .afpub file?

I'm not the Thread opener, but I think I have the same problem. I observed that if you make changes to your headings, the old versions of your headings still appear as bookmarks.

In the screenshot you see the Table of content, which is correct. The first part of the PDF-bookmarks on the left is also correct, but the additional entries are all referring to old versions of the headings. Observe for instance the bookmark "This heading once had another text" in the attached example.

I tried to delete and recreate the Tabele of contents and temporarily disabled and reenabled bookmark creation on export - no help.

BTW, I'm using the standard preset "PDF (for export)" and my Publisher version is on Windows 10.
