Hi Mikhail,

Open your project in Help+Manual, then in the Project Explorer on the left, navigate down to Configuration > Publishing Options > PDF > PDF Layout. The Create Table of Contents (Outline) option activates the Bookmarks TOC. Then directly after it is an option for turning numbering on and off.

Thanks, Tim!
Am i right, that user is not allowed to change this numeration pattern? (For example: if i want to numerate only <%HEADING2%>)

The outline numbering of the PDF bookmarks is generated by the PDF reader, and it can't be changed from Help+Manual. It is either on or off. You can edit the headings of the entries for the pages other than topics by editing the page options for the sections in Manual Designer. (Pages > Page Options: PDF Bookmark Text) This also enables you to include or exclude sections in the outline TOC. Sections without a PDF Bookmark Text entry are not included.
