A few questions:

1) When linking PDFs is there anyway to avoid putting in the full link?
ie. c:\document\anotherfolder\pdf\pdf.pdf
is there a way to change this to just haveing *\pdf.pdf

The PDF I am creating will be moved around often and any links therefore will become useless.

2) Is there a way to hide pages? Or to simply disable scrolling to the next page? This relates to the first question. If there is no way to "soft link" then I would have to make everything into 1 document but I would like to force the use of links instead of scrolling.

3) Is there a way to update a PDF if the source file changes? I have numerous word docs that will be changing constantly and will need to be updated in there PDF format. Is there an automated way of doing this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is basically my first time making a PDF and the Boss sprung a big project on me with little time to do it. Thanx very much for your time.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
