Inserts a bookmark in an existing outline tree.
It sets also the page mode to UseOutlines (see DynaPDF.SetPageMode). If the outline tree should not be shown when opening the document then set the page mode back to UseNone or another value before closing the document.
Parent can be the handle of the parent bookmark after the new bookmark should be inserted or -1. If Parent is set to -1 the bookmark is inserted as the first root node in the outline tree.
If the parameter AddChildren is set to 1, the bookmarks below the new one are added as children to the new bookmark. This can be useful when merging PDF files and if the bookmarks from each PDF file should be separated.
NamedDest must be a valid handle from a named destination, see DynaPDF.CreateNamedDest for further information. If the destination lies in another document then insert the bookmark with DynaPDF.InsertBookmark, create an extended Go To Remote Action with DynaPDF.CreateGoToRActionEx, and add the action finally to the bookmark with DynaPDF.AddActionToObj.
Notice: When inserting a bookmark the handles of all bookmarks below the new one are incremented by one.
