As part of  a routine reports I have to create PDF maps from different part of my map project. I have created bookmarks for this different areas, and my usual workflow is to navigate to this areas using the bookmarks and export maps in pdfs having turned on/off the necessary layers. I'm wondering if there is a script I can use/adapt to automate this process. Will like to be able to include all the bookmark or specify specific bookmarks.

There are some suggestions here (using a python): https://community.esri.com/thread/58083

I have an ArcMap add-in that I created a few years back that will generate polygon features from bookmarks that you can then use for data-driven pages.  I used it just last week, so its still working!  

I just pushed up the version I updated for 10.4.1 on GitHub.  (Look in the Release directory)

Map polygons for your report locations and save them in your database and use data driven pages to export your PDF's

Once you have them set up you can generate hundreds of pages in a matter of minutes
