Editing Bookmark Actions

When a bookmark is created it will typically only have one action associated with it and that is the Go To Page action. However, in the PDF format definition, bookmarks can have many different Bookmark Actions associated with them. When adding a bookmark to a PDF document Custom Bookmark Actions can be created instead of the standard Go To Page action.

Note: If a bookmark has multiple actions associated with it, actions will be executed in the order they were added to the bookmark.
