def page_range_bookmark_name(self, value: str):


Shows how to specify a bookmark’s spanned pages as a page range for an INDEX field entry.

# Create an INDEX field which will display an entry for each XE field found in the document.
# Each entry will display the XE field's "text" property value on the left side,

# The INDEX entry will collect all XE fields with matching values in the "text" property
# into one entry as opposed to making an entry for each XE field.

# If an XE field names a bookmark using the page_range_bookmark_name property,
# its INDEX entry will show the range of pages that the bookmark spans
