Related accessibility issue

Bookmarks provide a very useful table of contents. Every user can jump directly to a special heading or section in the document. Especially for low vision users bookmarks are very helpful.

The zoom for every bookmark should be set to "custom zoom". axesPDF QuickFix does this automatically!
