Hi,

what iOS-app do I have to use to see the bookmarks of my PDFs, which where created with the Preview-App in macOS? PDF Expert doesn‘t show the Bookmarks. (and by the way: the preview app in macOS doesn‘t show bookmarks which were created in PDF Expert)

Is there really no iOS-app (preferable from apple) which can recognize preview-app-bookmarks?

Hi John!

Thank you for using PDF Expert.

The thing is that Preview creates bookmarks within the app, so you can see them only in Preview itself. As for PDF Expert, it creates built-in bookmarks which you can access in any other app.

If you'd like to see your PDF Expert bookmarks in Preview, please click View > Table of Contents. All your bookmarks will be available there.

Let me know if this worked!

Thanks for the advice. Sometimes PDFs already have a table of contents and the PDF Expert-bookmarks get a bit mixed up with them, but for all other PDFs it works great.
