You could use a combination of tools to remove the old ToC, and attach a new one: use PDF SAM ("split and merge"; it's FOSS and cross-platform) to take off the old ToC; use PDF Outliner ($4.99 in Mac App store) to generate a new one. See other helpful tools in another Q&A.

Preview does not support this. You need more advanced PDF editing software, like Adobe Acrobat Pro or PDF Outliner.

Papers App does most of that. It is used for academic papers and can be synced via DropBox, including all notes and annotations. It does not keep track of your last read spot though.

In Finder, from the Go menu in the menubar (the right click menu of Finder in the Dock) select Go to Folder... (⇧⌘G). Paste in /private/var/spool/ and hit Go. The print jobs are the files beginning with "d". Copy them and rename them to end in .pdf.

Out company developed a batch process for this at PDFmyURL - with this you can convert an entire website to PDF by using a simple API. If you have the sitemap you can just pass this to the API and otherwise you pass the list of URLs that need to be crawled. The details are here

If you're wondering about the whole LaTeX thingy, have you ever considered another LaTeX compiler? I normally use texmaker because it has a built-in pdf viewer and i love it! Instead if you want the behaviour back by default, i reckon it can't be done (same behaviour on OS X 10.10 Yosemite and OS X 10.11 El Capitan)

I've finally found a solution that supports logical page numbers like the other PDF readers I have tried, but also respects custom page numbers embedded within the PDF. GoodReader shows the page numbers properly. It's $4.99

Here's what works for me, I email the PDF to myself (my account allows for files up to 50mb) I then read it in Mail and select "Open In" and choose Adobe Reader and voila it's now added to the documents list in Adobe Reader. Thanks to tex_mex from https://forums.adobe.com/people

One approach is to use Acrobat to add the links. When manually adding links, you specify the view to which the link points. With that, you can set the exact place where the linked to document opens. If you have suitable software to create your "second" document, you can use Named Destinations, which can be used as target for the link.

How do you assume that there's something wrong with all PDF viewers you've tried so far? Maybe simply page numbers are incorrectly embedded in the document which then has been saved to PDF? If that's true, then there's nothing wrong with the viewer itself. Simply your document should have all page numbers regenerated. If it originally comes from Word, try ...

I have not been able to find an app that would do this for you. It is very possible that Readdle's PDF Office can do this for you, however I do not have this app and it is a subscription premium service. I could not confirm from their website or the AppStore for sure that they have the feature to convert to gray-scale, but they bill it as a fully functional ...

Whether the file is indexed or not this works however if the target file does not resides on a volume/location that's being indexed then here is an alternative to the excellent solution presented by jordanmerrick. I just tried this using exiftool and if it's just the page count you want as a number then this works: exiftool "$i" | grep 'Page Count' | cut ...
