I have to fulfill a layout requirement, where the ToC includes a list of figures and a list of tables (that's OK), but additionally in the pdf bookmarks each figure and table should be indicated within the section where it appears. Take the following MWE:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{todonotes}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\restylefloat{table}
\restylefloat{figure}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[a4paper, margin=3cm, top=3cm, bottom=3cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[bookmarks=true]{hyperref}
\usepackage{bookmark}
\hypersetup{
linktocpage=true,
colorlinks=true,
linkcolor=blue,
filecolor=blue,      
urlcolor=blue,
bookmarksopen=true
}
\bookmarksetup{numbered}

\title{\begin{center}
My Title
\end{center}
} 
\date{}
\author{}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\maketitle
\end{titlepage}

\setcounter{page}{2}

\newpage
\pdfbookmark[0]{Contents}{Contents}
\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\listoftables

\newpage
\section{My first section}

Bla, bla bla.

\begin{figure}[H]
\caption{My first Figure}
\missingfigure[figwidth=6cm]{}
\end{figure}

\begin{table}[H]
\caption{My first Table}
\begin{tabular}{ |c|c|c| } 
 \hline
 cell1 & cell2 & cell3 \\ 
 cell4 & cell5 & cell6 \\ 
 cell7 & cell8 & cell9 \\ 
 \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\newpage
\section{My second section}

More bla, bla.

\begin{figure}[H]
\caption{My second Figure}
\missingfigure[figwidth=6cm]{}
\end{figure}

\begin{table}[H]
\caption{My second Table}
\begin{tabular}{ |c|c|c| } 
 \hline
 cell1 & cell2 & cell3 \\ 
 cell4 & cell5 & cell6 \\ 
 cell7 & cell8 & cell9 \\ 
 \hline
\end {tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

It generates this ToC, which is exactly what I need:

enter image description here

But it also generates these pdf bookmarks:

But I need the pdf bookmarks to look like this (sorry for using Code style):

Contents
|- 1 My first Section
   |- My first figure
   |- My first table 
|- 2 My second Section
   |- My second figure
   |- My second table

Any ideas?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX. The ToC does not really include the LoF etc. They are just on the same page (due to short real contents) – user31729 Jun 9 '16 at 14:05
  • Hi Christian, thanks for the welcome. I'm aware of that, actually it would be better to have the LoF and LoT within the ToC below the sections, but that's not an acceptance criterion for the layout (I have to match some authorities-defined layout). Critical is the bookmark question. ... May be I should add that i have hundreds of tables and figures automatically generated from R with knitr. So manually setting pdfbookmark and the level is not a real option – albifrons Jun 9 '16 at 14:12

The easiest way I can think of is to hook into \caption and add the bookmark with a unique bookmark label (generated by the total number of figures or tables)

To get the total numbers use (well, my ;-)) package xassocnt and associate stepping the relevant counters with them.

The \pdfbookmark[2]{text}{label:name} will add the figure or table entry as subsection level to the current section.

Be careful to use \texorpdfstring{tex content}{pdf content} for specific content of the caption, i.e. \caption{\texorpdfstring{$E=mc^2}{E=mc\textsuperscript{2}}}

Update

This does not use xassoccnt but a simple check of \@captype and increases the relevant \total... counter then.

It uses \currentpdfbookmark which takes care of the section level.

  • Christian, thanks for your answer. I wasn't able to get your MWE running. ! LaTeX Error: File xassoccnt.sty not found. Could you please guide me on how to install your package? That said, I have some doubts on how universal this will be. My MWE had just 2 main sections, my real case has sections and subsections, It will be difficult to introduce the bookmark level manually (there will be levels 2, 3, 4), am I right? – albifrons Jun 9 '16 at 15:08
  • Installation of packages depends on your TeX distribution. I think, I can add a solution without xassoccnt. Do you really want to use figures/table in the relevant section level? Try \currentpdfbookmark instead of pdfbookmark[2] (the remaining arguments are the same then) – user31729 Jun 9 '16 at 15:11
  • I didn't know \currentpdfbookmark , that can easily solve the problem indeed. If you could help me getting your package running or implementing a workaround you would save my day! (I'm using MikTeX 2.9). I'll try in parallel anyway. Thanks a lot. – albifrons Jun 9 '16 at 15:29
  • @albifrons: I am working on it ;-) – user31729 Jun 9 '16 at 15:30
  • @albifrons: See the update at the end of the post – user31729 Jun 9 '16 at 15:57
