Edit a bookmark

Nitro Pro comes with a complete set of tools for editing, ordering, grouping, altering the appearance of, and deleting the bookmarks in your PDF documents.

Tip: You can edit more than one bookmark at a time. To select a range of bookmarks already in order, left-click the first one, then hold down Shift and click the last one. To select multiple bookmarks that are not in sequence, just hold down Control while you select them.

To set the bookmark action:

  1. In the Bookmarks pane, right-click on the bookmark and select Properties
  2. Click the Action tab
  3. In the Action list, click the action, and then click Add Action to List
  4. Set the action
  5. Click Close

To delete a bookmark:

  2. Place the cursor on top of the bookmark that will appear above it and release the bookmark
