Indented bookmarks

We often get requests for indented or hierarchical bookmarks, and it is high on our feature list.

 

Until the feature is built I use a simple and very effective workaround to separate out top level and second and third level bookmarks.

 

To set the scene, if I am marking up a case, I may want to add a bookmark for each section of the judgement (‘Facts’, ‘Submissions’ ‘Discussion’ etc) and then under those have sub-bookmarks for particular issues (‘Ground 1, Ground 2, etc).

 

I simply use dashes (normally in batches of 3) to indent the bookmarks. I also use capitals for really top level markers (like Judge’s names). The result is a list of bookmarks for a case that may look something like this:

 

Held

JUDGE SMITH

Facts

–  –  – Parties

–  –  – Agreement

Submissions

–  –  – Claimant

–  –  – Defendant

Discussion

–  –  – Ground 1

–  –  –   –  –  –  important point

–  –  – Ground 2

–  –  – Ground 3

Conclusion

JUDGE JONES

re Ground 2

–  –  – useful

 

You can see that it is now much easier to find the bookmark you are looking for with a quick glance. Try it!
