Topic: Relative Paths in Acrobat 5.0
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 58917

Using Word 2000 and Adobe Acrobat 5.0, when I generate a PDF I need to change the path for external file links. The Word doc contains both internal links and external links. If I set the base URL, that does not work. If I set the base URL in Adobe, that does not work. Is there another tip or is there a way to do a search and replace in Adobe or to keep file paths relative. Using Open View does not work, because the links do not stay relative. Within some PDFs that I have, using Open File works, but in others, the path gets hard-coded in the link. I've tried and searched for an answer everywhere. This used to work just fine with relative paths in Word 97 and Acrobat 4.05. Please help!!!!!!

Thanks,

Luis aztech@pobox.com
