I am trying to set up some bookmarks in a pages document, and I have made the boookmarks but they dont appear in the inspector toolbox list of bookmarks when i open it up, so i am then unable to link them to anything. Any assistance on how to get them to appear in there?

    I just quickly made three one-page sections. Gave each one a Heading-1 Chapter name. I opened the link inspector to the bookmark tab. In the Pages document, for each successive chapter name, I selected it, then clicked the ‘+’ button to add it into the bookmark list. I now have Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 bookmarks listed there.


    Now, I switched link inspector tabs to hyperlink. Selecting the first chapter name, I enabled hyperlink, backspaced the apple link information away, and choose the hyperlink type of bookmark. I pointed it to the Chapter 2 name in the next section. In the second section, I repeated this process and pointed Chapter 2 to Chapter 3. In the third section, I repeated the same process, and aimed it at the first section, using the Chapter 1 bookmark.


    Saved it to PDF. In Preview, I can click on the chapter names and the bookmark linking works as expected, allowing me to hop between the respective sectional chapter headings.


    Here you will see the list of Chapter bookmarks, the hyperlink pointing Chapter 2 at Chapter 3, and the Chapter 2 from the Pages document.

    Are you using a word processing document?

    And you are making them in the main text area, not in any object like a textbox or shape?

    Yes. They can't be in objects.

    If the shape (or text box) is inline in the main text, you can select the anchor point and use the entire object as a bookmark.
