Title: How to Create an Outline in a PDF with Scribus
Post by: HiddenPlane on December 15, 2021, 03:17:57 am
Thank you, Scribus community, for this product and for your help. I'm at the end of a 270 page self-publication, and I made it with no major hiccups. My last hurdle was the TOC Table of Contents and an Outline that shows up in the PDF left bar that's clickable for navigation. The help documentation doesn't cover how this comes together, so this tutorial will fill in the gaps. You CAN do this now.

Disclaimers: I'm using 1.5.7.
This works on text frames, but works best on Title Bars, because the text becomes the Outline name.
This tutorial is a bare bones demonstration of the functionality.
I'm exporting PDF 1.6 compatibility.


Done. Now when you view your PDF, you should have an Outline with 2 elements and a sub-element child of the 2nd. When you click on any of the Outline elements, they will navigate you to the page with that element's text frame:
