Bookmarks can serve as an excellent navigational device in PDFs. Providing an interactive continuous display of the document structure, bookmarks add value to PDFs without complicating display/printing aspects. But for bookmarks to be efficient, they cannot merely include all document headings "dumped" onto the virtual page, as is the case when they are they are automatically produced by all authoring applications. Although you can theoretically use Acrobat to edit the text, hierarchy and grouping of the bookmarks which your application has automatically generated, this is not practical.
SP Bookmark Controller can do the following as part of the distilling process without a stroke of work in Acrobat:
The bookmark structure is collapsed to the 1st or 2nd level
Heading numbering is removed.
Figure and table bookmarks are extracted and placed under "List of Tables" and "List of Figures" bookmarks
Redundant text is removed or abbreviated
Short bookmarks (such as a stand-alone chapter number) can be merged with the following ones
Custom bookmarks can be forced to the beginning or end of the bookmarks
Bookmark styling can be employed automatically (Acrobat 5)
SP Bookmark Controller is activated when you use Acrobat Distiller to create a PDF, independent of the authoring tool used.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
