I use PDFpenPro to insert what I call ‘bookmarks’ but which are actually items in a table of contents (TOC) for PDFs which I store in DT3 databases. (I highlight a word in the PDF and a command in PDFpenPro creates a TOC entry.) These show up nicely in the DT3 inspector sidebar under the ‘Table of Contents’ part and they aid navigation of long PDFs enormously.
Does DT3 itself have a way of inserting TOC entries? (If it doesn’t, I would suggest the ability to be able to do this in some future version.)
I would also be thrilled if this became available… A lot of my older PDFs (e.g. scans) don’t have a toc of their own but now with DT3 i am realizing how helpful they are and would like to create tocs for those PDFs lacking them
I’m not exactly sure what it is we’re talking about here. The OP says “TOC” but what they describe is very much an index (highlight a word and add it to something called a TOC). And when I try this in PDFPen, I can only have one highlight per page – not, what I’d call a “TOC”.
I assumed we were talking about the Table of Contents of a PDF file - which you can read in DT or finder or equivalent, and click on a chapter/section to jump to that chapter/section. Isn’t that what a TOC is?
Well, there are apps that do just that. I don’t know exactly how they work, I guess they go by heading size etc. Though they also allow the user to create it themselves, which is what I have often done.
