I use to read a lot of user guide, how-to and magazine that most of the time we can’t finish reading it in short time. If we read books, we can just slip in a paper bookmark but how we going to do it for PDF files?

There must be a way to digitally bookmark where you can read back where you left off. I can’t find any option to do it in Adobe Acrobat Reader so  I do a quick dig in google and found ways to enable the bookmark with just install a plugin into the adobe plugin folders. This plugin is very useful for those who read lots of long story books in pdf files.

You can download the plugin from here and copy the plugin into the following location based of your adobe version
