The Bookmarks Panel of the Control Board

The Bookmarks panel displays with a click on the second button on the top toolbar of the Control Board:

This panel displays all the bookmarks contained by the active document sorted either by name or location:

As you navigate through the document window with the keyboard or mouse, the bookmark that is nearest to the caret is automatically highlighted in the Bookmarks panel so that you can identify the current document position within the global bookmark structure.

Double-clicking a bookmark name in the Bookmarks panel automatically brings up the corresponding bookmark in the document window.

Individual bookmarks are quickly displayed in the bookmark list by typing the first characters of their name. The typed characters are highlighted in red:

The bookmark name can be selected by typing more characters. You can also use a mouse click. At this point, pressing Enter brings up the corresponding bookmark in the document window.

 

The toolbar at the bottom of the Bookmarks panel includes all the bookmark-related commands:

Command Button Description

New bookmark

Button image

Shows a dialog asking for a name for a new bookmark. A new bookmark is automatically associated with the current document selection or caret position. So before using this command you should either click the desire location in the document (place the caret at some location in your document), or select the text fragment in the document that you want to associate with a new bookmark.
Each bookmark in the document must have a unique name. Two bookmarks with the same name are not allowed in a document. Bookmark names are also case-insensitive. This means that you cannot have multiple bookmarks in the document which simple are different case patterns of the same text string (for example, "bookmark", "Bookmark", "BOOKMARK").
Note that bookmark names cannot include punctuation signs (except the undescore "_" character).

Rename bookmark

Button image

Shows a dialog asking for a new name for the bookmark highlighted in the Bookmarks panel. A number of restrictions apply to bookmark names (see the description of the New bookmark command above).
If the active document contains hyperlinks associated with the highlighted bookmark, after you rename this bookmark, Atlantis suggests to adjust all the document hyperlinks associated with this bookmark so that these hyperlinks still are linked to this bookmark.

Delete bookmark

Button image

Deletes the bookmark highlighted in the Bookmarks panel.
If the active document contains hyperlinks associated with the removed bookmark, Atlantis also suggests to select these hyperlinks in the document (if there are multiple such hyperlinks, Atlantis select them as a multiple selection). When the "dead" hyperlinks (the hyperlinks associated with a non-existing bookmark name) are selected in the document, you can review them. For example, you might wish to deactivate these hyperlinks, associate them with another bookmark, or delete. If there are many such hyperlinks in the document, and you want to review them one by one but you cannot remember the location of all these hyperlinks in the documents, it can be a good idea to format all the selected hyperlinks with highlight or a font color or in any other way so that you could know the location of each "dead" hyperlinks even after the selection in the document is lost when you start adjusting the first "dead" hyperlink.

This command should be used in 3 steps:

  1. Select the fragment of document that you want to format as hyperlink (note that you can select multiple fragments as a multiple selection if you want multiple hyperlinks to the same bookmark be created).
  2. Select the target bookmark in the Bookmarks panel.
  3. Click the "Format document selection as hyperlink to the bookmark highlighted above" button.

Sort bookmarks by name

Button image

When this command is checked (when its button is in the pressed state), the Bookmarks panel displays bookmarks sorted in ascending alphabetical order of their names. This makes easier to locate the desired bookmark if you know its name (or the initial letters of its name).

Sort bookmarks by location

Button image

When this command is checked (when its button is in the pressed state), the Bookmarks panel displays bookmarks sorted in order of their appearance in the document starting from the document first page. This makes easier to locate the desired bookmark if you know its approximate location within the document.

Go to bookmark

Button image

Shows the highlighted bookmark in the document window (brings the bookmarked document location into view in the document window). Equivalent to double-clicking a bookmark in the Bookmarks panel.
