Collapse Bookmarks

I'm running NitroPro 10 and would like all the bookmarks to be collapsed at startup. I can right click and collapse them but their state does not remain when I reopen the pdf. Can this be done?

For a document, you can set it to not open the Bookmarks pane.  In the document, go to File, then Change View.  Set Navigation to Page only, and then you'll need to save the document.  Once you reopen it, the bookmarks pane will be collapsed.

Beyond that, you'll want to file a support ticket to see if there's another way to do it: https://www.gonitro.com/support/ticket

I appreciate the response and understand how to open and close the bookmarks pane but my question is how to collapse the actual bookmarks, not the entire pane.

Okay- on my copy of Nitro 10, clicking the + sign in front of the bookmark will expand or collapse the bookmark.

Is that what you're asking?

Almost... collapse the bookmark, exit Nitro, open the pdf back up. Is the bookmark still collapsed? I have a very long bookmark tree and I want two primary bookmarks expanded with all their children collapsed.

I don't see an easy way to do this- maybe support knows.  Otherwise, you might be able to do something with Javascript on the document open.

There is a way to do this, somewhat awkward.

Find an old copy of Adobe Acrobat.

Almost any version will work.

I use Acrobat X Pro - no longer supported.

Install on computer.

Some functions don't work, so I switched to Nitro for most tasks. 

After compiling document in Nitro, bookmarks default to open position when saving.

Bookmarks show as open regardless of collapsed position when created.

After saving document in Nitro, 

Save as a new document e.g. "Name" Test.

Then open the new document in Acrobat.

Open  bookmarks from L panel. 

Adjust the bookmark positioning - open / closed - then save.

Close the Acrobat document.

Reopen document in Nitro,

Bookmarks should open in position saved in Acrobat.  

Can rename to original document name. 

If some funky stuff shows up in Acrobat and it won't save, like page out of range...

Go back and open Nitro document and delete offending pages.

Then repeat process in Acrobat.

Can reinsert deleted pages in final document from Nitro.

Tedious, but works.
