Indexed PDF creation from a writer document and its table of content as index

Comment 3 hhielscher 2003-05-19 23:30:02 UTC
this bug is related to issue 10199 (Include pdfmark support in OO.o)
Comment 4 bettina.haberer 2003-09-10 16:04:37 UTC
This issue (as the first one about PDF wishes and many votes) includes
also the content of issue 10199 and 9954, both handling the PDF
capability (I changed the summary accordingly). 

PDFmark provides the capability for PDF files to contain enhanced
features such as indexes, hyper-text links, notes, bookmarks etc. If
OO.o could have the necessary support for pdfmarks, then it would be
possible to create maintainable PDF's with advanced features.

Editing, changing and removing of PDFmark information like title,
author, created by, produced by, etc..

And support of PDF tags.

Just not to loose good ideas I want to paste some from the closed Issues:

* Encryption:
 - Encrypt a PDF document with a user or master password (or both)
 - Edit permission settings (e.g., printing or text extraction not

* PDF Bookmarks:
 - OO outline information (TOC), OO Bookmarks, etc.

* PDF links:
 - inside a PDF document (e.g. footnote marks <-> footnote like in OOo
and nor only footnote marks -> footnote like M$ :-)
 - to URLs. So

* PDF pagelabels:
With this feature each page can have a string as label instead of its
page number. Roman letter page numbers or restarting the pagenumber
with 1 inside a document could be exported to PDF this way. A lot of
Documents restart their page numbers with 1 several pages inside the
document (after Title, TOC, ..). Therefore the pagenumber shown by
acrobat differs from the pagenumber printed on the pages and used for
cross references. This is can be very annoying. PDF pagelabels could
be a cure for that.

* comments in PDF files

I just thought that you might be interested in ExtendedPDF, a macro 
hosted on OOoMacros (

Currently, it adds bookmarks based on headings, some meta information, 
and has initial support for hyperlinks.

I thought you might be able to simply add this macro (perhaps as an 
add-in?) to the main distribution.

The URL in my earlier comments (2003-12-02 02:47 PST) is broken. The 
whole thing should be in one line. Alternatively, go to www.ooomacros.
org and follow the 'Macros' link

Comment 16 rhthornburrow 2004-09-05 17:14:28 UTC
The ExtendedPDF macro is a bit of a cludge, especially on Windows.

For me the creation of Bookmarks is an important feature for producing "online"
documentation in PDF format using OOo Writer.  The quality of the current
(1.1.2) PDF export is exceptional, but it lacks even basic features to control
the PDF output.  Given that my document contains a TOC, I would have hoped that
I could just tick a box and get a bookmark set generated from it.

remember: This issue is duplicate of issue 20327 which in turn is already fixed.
You can download one of the developer snapshots and test yourself: The feature
is already implemented.
The PDF export suppors both hyperlinks as well as an index (TOC).
