Creating a Table of Contents in Revu | Revu 2019

Revu can create a table of contents with links to pages in a PDF. If the PDF already includes bookmarks, the process is as simple as exporting the bookmarks to a new PDF, and then inserting that file at the beginning of the original document.

Create a table of contents

  1. Open a PDF in Revu.
  2. Use the Export Bookmarks feature to create a new PDF containing a hyperlinked list of the existing bookmarks:
    1. Go to Window > Panels > Bookmarks (Alt+B).
    2. From the Bookmarks panel toolbar, go to Bookmarks > Export Bookmarks .
      The Export Bookmarks dialog appears.
    3. Select the Open File After Creation checkbox, and then click Save.
      A new PDF will open containing a hyperlinked list of bookmarks contained in the original file.
  3. Use the Insert Pages function to insert the new PDF at the beginning of your document:
    1. Go to the original PDF tab, then go to Document > Insert > Pages from Document (Ctrl+Shift+I).
      The Insert Pages dialog box appears.
    2. Click Add, then navigate to the hyperlinked PDF and click Open.
      Alternatively, click Add Open Files and remove all documents from the list except for the hyperlinked PDF.
  4. In the Into section of the Insert Pages dialog box, click the dropdown menu and select Before.
  5. Click the First Page radio button.
  6. Click OK.

If no bookmarks exist

You should first confirm whether or not the document contains searchable text. If it does, you can use AutoMark to create bookmarks automatically. Alternatively, you can also add bookmarks manually.
