I use PDFMaker all the time, it's great. What you need to do is get rid of
PDFWriter, which is a horrible little beast. Is there some reason you are
keeping the Acrobat 3.0 installation on your machine? As Dick said, you
might need to clean up your registry, and I'd strongly advise you to dump
PDFWriter. I'm trying to remember whether PDFWriter was offered in the
Acrobat 4.0 installation, if it was I skipped it on purpose.

> The original question had to do with PDF Maker, not PDF Writer. PDF Maker
supposedly does carry bookmarks over from Word (not something I've actually
used, so this is basically hearsay). I think the original problem was that
Word was looking to the Acrobat 3 installation instead of the Acrobat 4
installation, which is where Maker comes from. Sounds like a Windows
Registry issue to me.
