    Is there a way to see bookmarks in a pdf in preview? bookmarks that weren't added by preview I mean? As far as I can tell there is not.. which is somewhat surprising. especially since they'll allow you to add your own. I mean that's what I would expect table of contents to be, but it doesn't show anything in my file even though in acrobat it has an extensive bookmarked table of contents.

    a follow-up question would be, is there any free pdf viewing software that is as snappy and responsive as preview (or close!) and will also display pre-embedded bookmarks? because I have a lot of files I like to navigate that way.

    ok so i've noticed now that the table of contents does show up for some pdfs, but not others.. but i'm talking pdf ebooks published by the same company so it seems odd. I really wish I could make the TOC show up properly for all these files, as I really prefer preview.
