Putting Bookmarks in Multi-Sheet .pdf's

I have found that if you publish to single-sheet .pdf's and then combine the .pdf's into one file using Acrobat, each sheet is bookmarked using the name of the individual files for the bookmark names.  However, if you publish to a multi-sheet .pdf, no bookmarks are created.  Is there any way to create multi-sheet .pdf's in AutoCad and have bookmarks automatically inserted (hopefully using the name of the layout as the bookmark name)?

>>>...using Acrobat...<<<
As you note, it's a feature of your external program that combined the individual files. No bookmarking in LT's driver to date.

I thought I'd bump this thread up since this would be a nice feature to have. It's not that hard to use Acrobat to create the bookmarks after the PDF is published, but would be nice to have them generated automatically.
