Looking for some help, not such a power user as a I would like!
I want to be able to index/outline/create a table of contents for big PDF files, that I can paste or print.
I review large PDF files (Medical records), in Preview or PDF Expert, and use both Catalina on desktop and iPad at times. Sometime someone else has even indexed the records to create a table of contents, but what I would really like to do is be able to make a table of contents to paste into my report (word), or print. I mainly use the macOS for screen space, but would use an iPad solution if needed.
In PDF expert for Mac I can make an Outline/Table of contents, but no way to print/paste the outline/TOC. I tried asking their support site, they say no.
Is there another way to do this? Different app? I own devonthink but so far have mainly used to OCR large PDF files for searching. Something like scrivener or ulysses- don’t have these but would be willing if they can do what I need.
(Huge bonus-maybe another topic- is generating a timeline from the dates of the significant records)
(edited to add that the table of contents does not have to link back to the original PDF once exported-I just need it as a list of documents reviewed that I then annotate- allows chronologic order of documents reviewed in the file, and a smaller compressed form of the record review. (so one large PDF file with TOC as my source, and then also the TOC headings to be able to export to a word doc)
