How to Print PDF Bookmarks
Print bookmarks pages from a PDF document. (paper feed image by Glenn Jenkinson from

A PDF bookmark is created in Adobe Acrobat and is used to link to a particular page or section of content in the document. Bookmarks are essentially a way to form a table of contents in a PDF and they can be set up as a hierarchy. In Acrobat, you can print PDF pages directly from the Bookmarks panel. When you print a particular bookmark, the printed pages will include all the pages in the bookmarked section.

Highlight a section of text in the document that you want the bookmark to jump to. If you want to jump to the top of a particular page, highlight the first word or phrase on the page. Open the Bookmarks panel and click "Options. Then click "New Bookmark." Type a label for the new bookmark in the entry created.
