Topic: Word2000 to PDF moves link with custom paper size

The problem in short: I create a PDF doc from Word 2000 with Acrobat Distiller Version 5.0 and when I use the Acrobat link tool, I see that all automatically generated links are moved further down and to the right from where they should be.
I have set the page size of the Word document to B5 (182mm x 257mm) and I have activated the option "Link Cross References / Table of Contents Entries" in the conversion settings in the Acrobat menu in Word 2000 (I'm not sure about the proper English names for the options, we use German Word and Adobe, sorry. Can supply screen shots for clarification).
When I use the Acrobat icon in Word to create the PDF, the PDF is created with links, but the links are not where they are supposed to be, but shifted about 50mm to the bottom and 16mm to the right (to me it looks as if the conversion process is using the standard A4 format somewhere instead of our custom B5 page size).
1) Has anybody here experienced the same or similar problem?
2) Does anybody have a solution or work around for me?
My settings are as follows:
Acrobat Distiller is the standard printer
Acrobat PlugIn PDFMaker.dot is activated in Word with the following conversion settings:
Default Paper Size 18.2cm and 25.7cm
Link Cross References / Table of Contents Entries (may be called differently)
Word Settings: Page setup B5 18.2cm and 25.7cm
Tools -> Options -> "Print" register tab: deactivate "Adjust to A4/US letter"
File -> Print -> Properties, register tab "Advanced Options": custom paper size 18.2cm and 25.7cm
Then, when I convert the doc to PDF, all the links are moved away from their real location. Also, Adobe displays that the paper size is A4 size so that I have to crop the pages manually.
Any ideas anybody? And PLEASE do not suggest that I move all the links by hand with the Acrobat link tool! Our manuals range from 50 to 1,500 pages, it's just not feasible.
Thanks for any help!
