I have a bunch of "naked" subsections, i.e. not belonging to a section.

  \usepackage{newtxtext, newtxmath}
              pdfborder={0 0 0},


The bookmark to the first subsection upgrades to a section bookmark, and all the rest subsection bookmarks seem to belong to this.

In the second chapter, with a section present, everything works OK. How can I have the subsection under the chapter, like this?

  • Loading the bookmark package might do the job. – epR8GaYuh Apr 17 '18 at 14:59

    A subsection without parental section is no subsection and a logically and typographically ill designed – user31729 Apr 17 '18 at 20:23

The bookmark package should fit your requirements. From the manual:

In the same way as hyperref the bookmarks are generated in the order of the bookmark generating macros (\bookmark). A level number is used to define the tree structure of the bookmarks. The restrictions are less strict:

  • The level values may jump and omit values. A \subsubsection may follow a \chapter. This was an error in hyperref, that prints a warning and tries to fix this.
