PDF bookmarks aid the user in navigating your document by allowing easy browsing without having to scroll back to the table of contents page after every choice.
If you are using the most recent version of the template, your bookmarks are created automatically during the conversion process. If you have a template that was downloaded before August 2019, some bookmarks might not be created automatically. (Title Page, Committee Members, Abstract and Appendices). To create bookmarks in the current version of the Word template, you need to follow the directions on our Word Doc to PDF Conversion guide.
If you are using the older template and need to insert missing bookmarks manually, here’s how to create a new bookmark using Adobe Acrobat Pro. (You will need the full version of Adobe Acrobat which is available in any campus computing lab or for purchase using the Adobe Creative Cloud app.)
