File with outlines information should consist of lines in the following format:

<level> <page> Outline text

<level> and <page> should be integers. Each field should be separated by exactly one space symbol. All values for <level> should be greater or equal than that of the first line. Page numeration starts with 1.

Outlines file can contain comments that start with # in first column. Comments and empty lines are ignored.
