An outline is an optional component of a PDF document, useful for viewing the structure of the document and for navigating within it.
Outlines are created by the document’s author. If you represent a PDF document outline using outline objects, the root of the hierarchy is obtained from the PDF document itself. This root outline is not visible and serves merely as a container for the visible outlines.
