Although I've googled extensively to find a solution, most of the related information online is about babel. I'm working with polyglossia and can't get the pdf bookmarks to appear in greek, although I have unicode set for hyperref, I've tried the bookmark package and several other suggestions online.



\newfontfamily\greekfont[Script=Greek]{Liberation Serif}
\newfontfamily\greekfontsf[Script=Greek]{Liberation Sans}

Could you please post an MWE that reproduces the issue? I use Polyglossia and Hyperref without any issues. – Jörg Nov 8 '12 at 13:40
@Jörg there you go, sorry I forgot to add an example. – alkar Nov 8 '12 at 13:53
This compiles fine on my machine and I have Συμπεράσματα as a bookmark in the PDF. Could it be font related? I used Minion Pro as I don't have Liberation. Anyway, remove unicode from the hyperref setup. You don't need it and it causes a Failed to convert input string to UTF16 warning. – Jörg Nov 8 '12 at 15:30
Thanks for the advice, I'll try with a different font and see if it works. – alkar Nov 8 '12 at 15:40
Actually, it was solved just by removing the unicode option in hyperref. Thanks! You might want to submit an answer so I can accept it :) – alkar Nov 8 '12 at 16:07

You just need to remove the unicode option in the hyperref setup and the bookmarks will be generated correctly.
