how do i create an index in my pdf

Hi There,
I want to create a chapter index in my pdf to make the pdf more easy to use as it is +100 pages. The original file is powerpoint. Can you please inform on how i can build/ implement this. Preferably in the form of a sidebar with all chapters that you can click on.

Thank you for your response

What you're talking about is called "Bookmarks" in the PDF-world. Open the Bookmarks panel on the left of the window and you'll be able to add/edit/delete bookmarks. Notice that the bookmarks hierarchy doesn't have to be flat. You can have bookmarks nested in other ones.

Couldn't the bookmarks be created when the PDF is created from the PowerPoint document. I haven't tried this but it seems since PowerPoint is part of the Office suite and you can create bookmarks from a Word file the same could be accomplished in PowerPoint.
