I want to colorize my bookmarks in this way. Is there any chance to do this with the hyperref package? Thanks.

  • Yes, it is possible, using bookmark package – user31729 Nov 15 '15 at 21:23

One way is to use the \bookmark command and its color= option. However, hyperref adds automatically bookmarks unless the tocdepth is smaller than -1, so using \bookmark would double the entries.

Setting tocdepth to -2 temporarilywill disable this, use\bookmarkthen with a destination and use the the relevant sectioning command then (or whatever should be bookmarked),after that set thetocdepth` to another value again to provided the automatically generated bookmarks.




\bookmark[level=0,dest=chap:here,color=blue]{A chapter}

\chapter{A chapter}\hypertarget{chap:here}{}
\section{Another level}

  • thanks. how can i change the color of a specific bookmark (e.g. make all chapters blue or only bibliography red)? – Jaska Nov 15 '15 at 21:47
  • @Jaska: Use color=red for example and the bookmarkdefinestyle command -- please look into the bookmark manual. – user31729 Nov 15 '15 at 21:48

Inserting this in your preamble works fine:

\bookmarkdefinestyle{TheStyleOfTheBookmark0}{color=blue} % Farbe Bookmark Chapter
\bookmarkdefinestyle{TheStyleOfTheBookmark1}{color=green} % Farbe Bookmark Section
\bookmarkdefinestyle{TheStyleOfTheBookmark2}{color=red} % Farbe Bookmark Subsection
\bookmarkdefinestyle{TheStyleOfTheBookmark3}{color=black} % Farbe Bookmark Subsubsection
  • Perhaps a hint to the manual as I gave you in my answer would be useful. – user31729 Nov 16 '15 at 10:14
