Hey Everyone

This problem has been buging me for ages and I cant find a post on it already.

I am converting a word document with a text box in the header/footer containing vertical text. When I use the word PDFmaker macro or the distiller, the text does not apear in the final PDF. If I use the simple printer driver to create the PDF it works OK, but then of course I loose all hyperlinks and other wonderful things that the PDFmaker can handle.

Does anyone know know how to fix this?

And Yes, I have the "search header/footer" option ticked.

I am using Acrobat 6 with Word2000. I am at work in a big company with strict IT so I cannot try any 3rd pary add-ons that may workaround this.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
