I'm using the \includepdf command from the pdfpages package like this:

\includepdf[pages=-,addtotoc={1,subsection,2, Conditions, mylabelA}]{fname1}
\includepdf[pages=-,addtotoc={1,subsection,2, Blocks, mylabelB}]{fname2}

The chapter toc is fine but the bookmarks for the included pdfs are at the section level, aligned with the section title (Introduction):

\BOOKMARK [0][-]{toc.0}{Contents}{}% 1
\BOOKMARK [0][-]{chapter.1}{Code}{}% 2
\BOOKMARK [1][-]{section*.1}{Introduction}{chapter.1}% 3
\BOOKMARK [2][-]{section*.2}{Conditions}{chapter.1}% 4
\BOOKMARK [2][-]{section*.3}{Blocks}{chapter.1}% 5

How do I specify that the bookmarks should be at the subsection level so they nest underneath the section?


You are missing an anchor:

      Package hyperref Warning: The anchor of a bookmark and its parent's must not
(hyperref)                be the same. Added a new anchor on input line 26.

Add it with \phantomsection:

\includepdf[pages=-,addtotoc={1,subsection,2, Conditions, mylabelA}]{example-image}
\includepdf[pages=-,addtotoc={1,subsection,2, Blocks, mylabelB}]{example-image}

  • Why is the phantomsection needed? Shouldn't the refstep in chapter be enough to provide an anchor? (just wondering) – daleif Aug 10 '17 at 20:45
  • @daleif: the chapter has its anchor, the problem is the following \addcontentsline, – Ulrike Fischer Aug 10 '17 at 20:47
  • But shouldn't that anchor be "global" so others can access it, or am I on the wrong path here? – daleif Aug 10 '17 at 20:50

    @daleif: The bookmarks try to build an hierarchical structure, the section bookmark is a level below the chapter. This doesn't work with one anchor. hyperref realize this. – Ulrike Fischer Aug 10 '17 at 20:52
