What does a "PDF Bookmark File" look like?
#9
A pdf bookmark file is a simple hidden text file that can be imported and/or exported from an pdf file. The file name should like example: "bookmarks Duke Ellington.txt".
Each line in a text file is a bookmark which points to a page in the pdf file. Each line in the bookmark file may look like this: Caravan/5,Black,notBold,notItalic,open,FitPage
In other words: Song name/page number,bookmark properties and actions.
You easily can create it yourself and import it into any pdf file. The advantage is you can use it in any PDF reader and use it for searching your songs. If the pdf file you downloaded contained already a bookmark file (so a complete bookmarked index) you can import it in your MSP to create a csv file. In any other proper pdf music reader you can import those bookmark files.
For people who want to create a bookmark file themself they can use the jpdfbookmark program to import and export your text file: https://sourceforge.net/projects/jpdfbookmarks/
It is completely free. The bookmark file is a hidden file in your pdf file.

Remember: if you convert an index (from a picture) from a song book and use the page numbers from the index you need to start counting with the cover page beïng number 1. So the page numbers used in the book may differ from the numbers you should use in your bookmark file.
