# Changing grouping for bookmarks of appendix

I have an appendix with multiple chapters, while I like it that the main chapters of the document appear on the highest hierarchy level in the bookmarks, I would like the appendix chaptes to be children of the appendix bookmark. It would be even better if i could prefix the chapter number

I have this for the bookmarks

Appendices


and would like this

Appendices


MNWE

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}
\begin{document}
\begin{appendices}
blah
\end{appendices}
\end{document}


With package bookmark, the level of the next bookmark entry can be changed via \bookmarksetupnext. In this case, the level of the appendix bookmark should behave as \part (numeric value -1):

\bookmarksetupnext{level=part}
\begin{appendices}
\chapter{...}


Full example:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}
\usepackage{bookmark}
\bookmarksetup{open,numbered}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Introduction}
\section{Section A}
\chapter{Summary}
\bookmarksetupnext{level=part}
\begin{appendices}

• bookmarksopenlevel=0 behaves oddly with this, for all chapters before the appendix it shows them collapsed, however the Appendices bookmark is open. While I like this behaviour, could explain it/ how to change it? – ted Jun 29 '13 at 23:27
• @ted: Appendices is a part entry. If you want to have the bookmarks collapsed, just use the default or \bookmarksetup{open=false} or \bookmarksetup{openlevel=-1}. – Heiko Oberdiek Jun 30 '13 at 0:03
• When I click on for instance an appendix content like A Additional images in your answer, It goes to cover page instead. Is there any further option needed here? – enthu Nov 11 '14 at 16:06
• @Overdrivr Add \bookmarksetup{startatroot} before the bibliography. – Heiko Oberdiek Mar 20 '17 at 17:32
