I'm attaching two minimal examples.  The first:



\title{Introduction to \LaTeX{}}
\author{Author's Name}


The abstract text goes here.

Here is the text of your introduction.

    \alpha = \sqrt{ \beta }

\subsection{Subsection Heading Here}
Write your subsection text here.

Write your conclusion here.


produces outline panel with LaTeX.  It requires hyperref package.  Process it
in 4 steps: `latex test' twice, then `dvips test' and finally `ps2pdf test.ps'.

The second:

\input eplain

    \pdfdest name {label} xyz%
    \pdfoutline goto name {label} {first chapter}%

This is first chapter

    \pdfdest name {label2} xyz%
    \pdfoutline goto name {label2} {second chapter}%

This is second chapter


produces outline panel simply with eplain but it requires pdftex.  Process it
with `pdftex test2'.

I really hope you could find a solution.  Thanks indeed.  Please let me know if
the examples should not work to you.  They do to me.
