Use the Content panel to correct reflow problems in a PDF that can’t be corrected by using the Touch Up Reading Order tool. Because you can damage a PDF by editing content objects, make sure that you’re familiar with PDF structure before you change anything. For comprehensive information about PDF structure, see the PDF Reference Sixth Edition: Adobe Portable Document Format Version 1.7, on the PDF reference page (English only) of the Adobe website.

The Content panel provides a hierarchical view of the objects that make up a PDF, including the PDF object itself. Each document includes one or more pages, a set of annotations (such as comments and links), and the content objects for the page. The content objects consist of containers, text, paths, and images. Objects are listed in the order in which they appear on the page, like tags in the logical structure tree. However, PDFs don’t require tags for you to view or change the object structure.

Each table of contents is a separate story consisting of a heading and a list of entries sorted either by page number or alphabetically. Entries, including page numbers, are pulled directly from content in your document and can be updated at any time—even across multiple documents in a book file.

The process for creating a table of contents requires three main steps. First, create and apply the paragraph styles you’ll use as the basis for the TOC. Second, specify which styles are used in the TOC and how the TOC is formatted. Third, flow the TOC into your document.

Table of contents entries can be automatically added to the Bookmarks panel for use in documents exported as Adobe PDF.

files into a single pdf.file.

I have already bookmarks, shown on the screen (see screenshot below) but I want those bookmark to be visualised in a separate TOC in the top of the combined files.

This new TOC (which I have inserted) shall be printable and serve as a cover page in a binder.

I have seen other cheap pdf.programs in the market (e.g. PDF Converter Professional 7.3) which are able to make the above things, easy, fast and nice.

When it comes to setting up links within a PDF, I like to combine two methods.

The first is to use the LINK tool, which you can find in the Tools menu under TOOLS > ADVANCED EDITING > LINK TOOL. With this tool selected, drag an area around the item that you want to make clickable. This will then display a dialog box presenting you with options for how you want your link to look and where you'd like it to link to.

The next thing I like to do is to create bookmarks to each of the important sections within the document. To open the Bookmarks panel, go to the view menu and select VIEW > NAVIGATION PANELS > BOOKMARKS.

You can also include expandable bookmarks if you'd like to have, say, a bookmark to a particular chapter, and then bookmarks to sections within that chapter all within that bookmark. To do this, you can drag a bookmark into another bookmark.

Then, before sending out your PDF, you need to make sure that the Bookmarks panel will display when your end-users open your PDF. To do this, go to FILE > PROPERTIES and select the tab Initial View. On the option for Navigation Tab, select "Bookmarks Panel and Page."

Good. Save your PDF and you're done.
