Working with Bookmarks
In the bookmarks menu (the open book icon), press the + button at the top to open the bookmark creator, and type in a title as well as start and end pages. If something is wrong with the values you’ve entered, the bookmark validator will alert you. Once any errors have been corrected, tap the Save button to finalize your bookmark.
Tip: to create a traditional bookmark that simply opens your file to a particular page, leave the “to” page field empty. Note that these bookmarks are not listed in the score menu.
If you would like to save a particular bookmark as its own PDF file, view the bookmark you’d like to save, then open the Rearrange tool and choose “Save As…”, then specify a file name. You can also use the share panel to extract a bookmark directly as either a 4SC or PDF file and send it to someone else.
Bookmarks are a great way to work with a particular section within one of your existing files. They show up just like any other item in the score menu, start and stop on the pages you specify, and can even have their own metadata (including audio tracks).
They also show up in the bookmarks menu, which only shows bookmarks for the score you’re currently viewing. You can sort them by page number, alphabetically, or search for a particular title.
The only major difference between a file and a bookmark is that all bookmarks depend on their source file (so if you delete the original file, all of its bookmarks will disappear as well).
If your PDF file already contains a table of contents, you may be able to use this information to create bookmarks. Tap the edit button, then choose “Import” to scan for any usable information.
If you prefer to use a PDF’s table of contents directly, simply choose the third sort type, “TOC,” and you’ll be able to quickly navigate to any section by selecting it from the list.
To edit a bookmark, tap the round arrow button next to it just like you normally would for any other score. The metadata panel will open up, and two additional fields will be available next to the title field for start and end page. These values can be changed at any time, along with the other standard metadata values.
If you need to remove a bookmark, you can delete it either from the main score menu or from within the bookmark menu itself without removing or changing the bookmark’s source file.
