I know on Altium that it is possible to generate a Smart PDF which generates a sort of bookmark for each component designator on a PCB layout, but unfortunately I have done my board design using Eagle 6.91.2 Lite Version and I not sure if it is a) possible or b) how to do it if it were possible.

I have the ability to print the design to a PDF but that doesn't work and even using the text recognition option on Adobe PDF Viewer doesn't prevail any useful results.

Apologies if this is not the correct place to be asking such a question as it is about a piece of software. However as it is a schematic editor I thought it somewhat suitable.
