Topic: Word doc with large number of links that don't convert to PDF
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 132359

I have an MS Word document (Word 2003) with a large number of links to Web sites, headers within the document, and bookmarks within the document.

I set 3-4 links (at least one each of the various types I mentioned) and created a test PDF to see if this functionality really worked (and I ensured that my conversion settings were accurate, that I was using the "Convert to PDF" menu item and not going through File --> Print, etc.). It did!

So, I set the rest of the links in my document -- probably about 50 total. Now when I PDF this same document using the exact same process and conversion settings, none of the links work. Is there a limit to the number or links that can be converted to PDF?

I'm using Acrobat 6.0 Standard.

Please help -- creating these same links in the PDF document itself takes about three-times as long, and I have to re-do them every time I have to make a change in Word and re-PDF (which inevitably happens several times).
