Hey there! I occasionally like to read books online. I have a few downloaded and they open up in Adobe Reader 9. The thing that bugs me the most about Adobe Reader 9 is that there is no "bookmark" feature. When you are reading a novel that is 400-500 pages, it is impossible to always remember where you left off. If only I could bookmark my pages to easily pick up where I left off.

I was researching this very topic on the Internet and came across the following page.....

http://zagtalk.surferzag.com/?p=930

This page seems to provide an answer to my problem & it seems to be a very easy answer at that. There is only one thing I am unsure about? Where is Adobe Readers Javascript folder? :) I looked under....my computer>local disk C>program files>Adobe>Reader 9.0>Reader>....and this is where I get confused. There are 2 different folders that say Javascript and 4 different folders that say plug-ins. Which folder would I place the bookmark feature in? I don't want to guess/experiment and mess anything up! Also, after you download the bookmark plug in, it says to right click on it and "save as" in the Javascript folder. Couldn't I just copy the bookmark plug in and then paste it in the Javascript folder? Appreciate anybody who takes the time to answer. :) Thanks all! :)

Hi mindydee113,

I found the Article below concerning Bookmarks in Adobe Acrobat 9.

Article Description
Getting around in a huge PDF document can take a lot of time. The Adobe Creative Team shows how to speed things up by using the bookmark feature in Acrobat 9 to create and organize bookmarks that give you quick-click access to the page you want.

Try this link here > Working with Bookmarks in Adobe Acrobat 9

You may not need a Plug-in.

See if this helps you out.

I don't have Adobe "Acrobat" 9, that is the version of Adobe that cost money. I have the free version, which is "Adobe Reader 9".

upon further research of this subject....i managed to figure an answer out on my own. like i said, Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 cost about $100. This question was referring to Adobe Reader 9 the free software version. The plug in did work. I just had to figure out where to put it. Click on the plug in and open up the page. Right click and choose save as....then this will open up a box to instruct you where to put the plug in. Go to My computer/C:/documents & settings/user name/application data/Adobe/Acrobat/9.0/Javascripts. This is obviously the instructions for windows. Dummy me :) , I found the instructions on the page with the plug in. I didn't click on it originally. I thought you just had to copy & paste the link. If you click on the page with the plug in, it gives instructions for windows and mac, where to go to place the plug in. Then open up Adobe Reader and click on tools and "voila" there is the bookmark feature! Hope this helps out others in the future! Peace out!

Hi mindydee113,

I was under the assumption that ALL Adobe readers were free! I had no idea that there was a paid version to be completely honest. Please accept my apologies!

As for the Adobe Acrobat Reader, I do believe they are one and the same. Acrobat was bought out by the Adobe Systems I believe. But, don't quote me on this.

See here > http://en.wikipedia....i/Adobe_Acrobat

I'm glad you got that issue worked out. I, too, learned something today. Thanks for posting how you solved this issue. Trust me, many others may come upon this same issue, so don't think of yourself as a dummy! You just passed on information that will help others! Now that's commendable!

Donna :)
