           Summary: kdevelop support for pdf (and other) bookmarks
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: gideon
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel at kdevelop.org
        ReportedBy: e9625392 at student.tuwien.ac.at

Version:           3.0.0 (using KDE 3.0.4)
Installed from:    SuSE
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.19-4GB

I'd like to be able to bookmark, display, index and search any document type.
Bookmarking of other files then *.html is currently difficult but possible, if you change the file type filter by hand from the browse file dialog.
The file type filter even doesn't let you bookmark *.htm (which is common too) easily.

After adding a bookmark to a PDF file it just displayed the binary data in the khtml kpart. Therefore the according kpart should be used for displaying.

Indexing and searching is done by the search engine and thus it's up to it if it supports other file types but PDF is supported by most.

I'd suggest to provide more file type filters:
- HTML (*.htm*)
- PDF (*.pdf)
- Postscript (*.ps)
- Word (*.doc)
- All Files

Perhaps it might be useful to exclude certain documents from indexing (config!).
