When you open an existing PDF document, the PDFDocument.Bookmarks property is empty even though there are bookmarks in the document.

This is a bug. Please suggest a work-around.

Hi Richard,

Currently we do not have support for reading existing bookmarks or add bookmarks to an existing PDF document. We can only create bookmarks using Essential PDF. However, we do have plans for implementing this feature[FR-1326] of reading bookmarks and retaining the bookmarks when merged, in the future.

Could you please let me know the scenario where you need to read the bookmark so that I can provide you an workaround if possible? As suggested in the previous thread, if you want to create bookmarks in an existing document, we have to add the contents to a new document and add bookmarks.

Please let me know if you have any other queries.
