About outline tree

A PDF document may display a document outline on the screen, allowing the user to navigate interactively from one part of the document to another. The outline consists of a tree-structured hierarchy of Bookmarks (sometimes called outline items), which serve as a "visual table of contents" to display the document's structure to the user.

Each Bookmark has a title that appears on screen, and an Action that specifies what happens when a user clicks on the Bookmark. The typical Action for a user-created Bookmark is to move to another location in the current document — although any Action can be specified.
