This service helps you navigating and reading your favorite PDF documents, by automatically adding bookmarks in the navigation pane, reflecting their Table of Contents (if they have one of course!).
In more detail, the service will search for the Table of Contents (ToC) inside the PDF document, identify the part referred to by each entry of the ToC, make a hierarchy of the ToC entries and finally reflect this strutured ToC by bookmarking the PDF ...But do not worry about this complicated explication, :-), the use of bookmarks is very intuitive in the PDF viewer tool!
NOTE that we provide this service on OpenXerox to demonstrate the technology, or for your personal convenience, but not for business use.
Under the hood are the same components as in PDF to ePub, which allows you to convert your PDF document to ePub format for easier reading on your favorite eReader. Those components are also available for developpers as web services from Rossinante web service. The update of the PDF is done using the pdfscribble Java library provided by our colleague Andreas Salathé.
Please, check that your PDF file is searchable (it contains text). This service does not work for PDF files which simply encapsulate images.
Enjoy! And please give us feedback!
