Numbering in pdf bookmarks

Unread post by Ga Bowen » Fri Jun 07, 2019 11:03 am

When I produce a pdf I would like the bookmarks to be numbered to reflect the ToC.

Is this possible?

You need to do it the other way round: You need to number your TOC to reflect the bookmarks, since you can't change the numbering style of the bookmarks. It's generated automatically by the PDF reader. All you can do is switch that numbering on and off in Configuration > Publishing Options > PDF > PDF Layout. The options there are

[x] Create Table of Contents (Outline)
[x] Outlines are numbered (1, 2, 3, 4...)
