### Remove Bookmarks from PDF

Hi all,

I am submitting a paper to an IEEE conf, which requires no bookmarks in the created pdf file. I didn't use any hyperref package in my Tex code, and created the pdf file through "dvi2pdf". I've done a lot of search on the internet for a possible solution, but till now none of them worked out. The deadline will be due soon. Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance!

These are all packages used in the tex file if they matter:

Perhaps one of the packages you use loads hyperref implicitly, or the documentclass does that. You did not mention the class. If hyperref is loaded this way, you could specify the `draft` option or set `bookmarks` to false, such as
`\PassOptionsToPackage{bookmarks={false}}{hyperref}`

at the very beginning of your document, or
`\PassOptionsToPackage{draft}{hyperref}`

or use `\hypersetup`:
`\hypersetup{draft}`

Here is the solution that worked for me: (Tested on IEEE EDAS checks)

In any linux terminal,
`pdf2ps paper.pdf`

You will have a paper.ps Remove or delete your earlier pdf file. Now convert this .ps to .pdf
`ps2pdf paper.ps`

This generates paper.pdf. (You will notice this pdf file is smaller than the previous pdf file). It passes the IEEE edas bookmark checks.

Hope this helps.
