Any tip on how to import any element of a PDF file is very welcomed!

I don't think you can import bookmarks in PDFs as nodes but you can specify page numbers by adding the following (without the quotation marks) to the end of the PDF file's address - in this case the target is page 10: "#page=10".

This feature is a little flaky and in my experience seems to work better with web addresses rather than local ones. The MAP add-in I mentioned in one of my other posts has a Link to PDF Page# which simplifies the process of adding the page number and may work more reliably with local files.

I agree though that the Simpleminds approach as shown in the video you posted handles this a lot better and something like this should be incorporated into MindManager.

We have good experiences with importing PDF's in MindManager by first converting them to Word using to convert the PDF to MS Word and then importing the Word file into MindManager.

You can use link to URL/ File Path and then define the pdf address like this :

"   file:///C:/Users/{username}/Desktop/File.pdf#page=10 "

Make sure that you write the same path for Link Target and Link Title.
