Hi Souha,

You’ll need Acrobat and not just the free Reader do this.

Thanks,
Lori

Hi Teresa Cotton,

If you create your PDF from Word using the PDFMaker add-on, you’ll be able to automatically create bookmarks and links. Plus all the content is searchable. You can find more information on how to do this in this tutorial:
https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/convert-word-excel-and-powerpoint-files-to-pdf

Also, the Combine dialog allows you to bring together multiple files and add bookmarks at the same time as well. Check out the list view in the Combine dialog to do this.

Thanks,
Lori

I need help with setting up a PDF with multiple documents and indexing the information so it can be searchable.  It is our Employee Handbook.  I have Adobe Acrobat XI and MS Word 2010.  Most of the documents are PDFs and I need to combine files in a single PDF and create a Table of Contents or Bookmark so it can be searchable.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Teresa
