I use Word 2000 with Acrobat 4 in a Windows NT environment.

Making PDFs is dead easy. When I want something quick and easy (no
bookmarks) I print to PDFWriter. When I want full headings to bookmarks and
TOC and cross-reference hyperlinks, I use the Create Adobe PDF command to
'print to Distiller' with the 'Print via Distiller's printer' option
selected. It doesn't automatically hyperlink to index entries, so if anyone
has worked this out, please let me know (I'm lazy).

You control the output by changing the Distiller settings. Exchange is still
the tweaking tool.

It really bugs me that it works so well (I wanted a compelling reason to use

Good morning.

It has been several years since I've had to use Word to convert my
documentation to PDF. (I was very happy with PDFing my Framemaker files,
thank you!)

So I don't have any surprises, can anyone comment on how they currently use
Word 2000 to PDF? A few questions:
* Can it easily auto-hyperlink TOC, Index, and X-Refs?
* Is Exchange still the tool to use to tweak the PDF?

Thank you.
