Topic: Location-specific hyperlinks in MS/Word-created documents
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 91920

I have posted this message in the General Forum, but I am posting it here in case that posting might miss someone with the answer I'm seeking. I am relatively new to Acrobat but have a programming background. I'm in a Windows2000, Word2000, Acrobat Standard 6.0 environment.

I would like a way for technical writers to create/maintain corporate procedures documents in MS/Word. I would like to publish these documents as PDFs on our intranet. To make them most effective (and reduce the frequency with which they're printed) I would like to link from the text within each document, as appropriate, to specific text locations in others of this document family.

Has anyone who's willing to share already figured out how to do this ? I think I can create hyperlinks in MS/Word to Named Destinations in other documents (http:ipaddress/filename.pdf#namedest=name), but I have no clue how to create the Named Destinations in MS/Word and have them make it to the resulting PDF.

I have been advised that Named Destinations are an inefficient way to address locations in PDFs, so, if you have any insights into alternatives to Named Destinations, please share that.

Thanks.

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.
